Toproping Golden Book


The big corner around the corner to the right from Pegasus - just after you duck under a block leaning against the face.

Can easily be led.

Good pro the whole way, anchor situation at the top can be dire (surprise). Be mindful of loose blocks on the right face on the top 1/4 of the climb, some came crashing down last season (Fall '07). No known injuries, just a sobering reminder that gravity sucks!

Led this today, thought it was quite nice. Pretty much a stemming situation for the most part. A bit awkward at times with big jug holds thrown in here and there. Don't worry about the loose rock, there is really only one, way up at the top, which can be avoided. You can get a tree at the top for an anchor. Solid gear the whole way. Two thumbs up.

The big, loose rock that I saw was 4/5 the way up, about 10 feet or so from the top. Someone had marked it with a big white X visible from the base. Definitely nasty looking and you absolutely should be aware of it, but it can be avoided and the climb is still fun.
