Description 

A stunning,classic line on the quality Goldband. Far left edge of Goldband, from a ledge stay with cracks and face holds thru amazing lower pitch climbing. The crux isn't too far off the deck, and beyond it 5.10+ and easier climbing leads beyond a dihedral corner system. A scramble off is required beyond the pillar top end of the routes goodness, making for an easier climb broken into two, and a difficult climb to approach from the top or top-rope.


Location 

Moolack is most of the way to the West Edge turnaround from the end of the approach and the Pedestal Area


Protection 

#00 to 3.5 cams nuts hexes, sliding nuts are helpful
NO BOLTS AT MOOLACK
