Description 

This short, heavily featured face is just left of Coyote Crag and home to several well-protected moderates - Hidden Gold (5.7) and Gold Bug (5.8), as well as one longer one - Gold Standard (5.6).

The base of the wall requires a little scrambling to reach and is somewhat uneven, making this not a child or pet friendly area.

Routes listed from left to right:

Gold Bug (5.8)
Flash for Hash (5.8)
Hidden Gold (5.7)
Gold Standard (5.6)

Flash for Hash starts in the finger/small hands crack between Gold Bug and Hidden Gold. It is difficult to say where the crux lies; most of the crack can be avoided due to the well-featured face on both sides. Avoiding those holds, I found the start to be a little tough and the upper half of the crack yields better to a layback than to hand jams, at least for my hands.
