This is on the same side of the gully as The Gold Wall. It's the next flank of rock just uphill. Climb a narrow left facing corner/ramp to a nice ledge. Stay right here (better protection). Follow cracks up a ways to another great stance. From here thin cams will get you to a single bolt in between cracks. Climb past bolt to finger crack that turns to a pod/alcove.(crux 5.10) Then a thin hand crack takes you to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Very high quality rock and a great spot to hang for a couple hours.
