(more current approach details)
from where the approach trail meets the cliff, walk left past Wolf Wall, through a jumble of boulders, past a section of tallish, slabby wall to a point where you can distinguish that a terrace trail ascends slightly up right to a short wall with a distinctive, right-facing dihedral and alternatively. Another path leads down left beside a shortish slabby wall. At the end of the slabby wall is a large, shallow cave feature with some large boulders in front of it. Just past this is Golden Arch. Its an arching hand/finger crack that ascends left to right over the left side of the cave and ends on the upper level where the aforementioned terrace trail is.
Good route. One of the better trad routes at the crag.
