Description 

This is what the locals refer to as "the best climb here, it's got a little of everything" Start on a jug, slap left then right to slopers...fun slopey mantel. Classic

Protection 

A couple of pads and a couple of spotters is perfect.

I tried finding this boulder the other day and could not for the life of me! Anyone have any good directions to getting here? Ive heard to go past hueco simulator and to go into the gully past the front corridor? Which is more accurate?

past vagina, keep walking down past the bad boulders, down hill into gully, cross creek and it's right on your left after passing over the creek.

Hard to beat this thing. Sooooo aesthetic, and it climbs just as well.

If you've never been to this boulder before, I found it easiest to go into Hueco Simulator, then walk past Dugout, Chex, and Scoop. You'll end up at the Blue boulder, and Golden will be on your left.

Alternatively, there's a trail that goes right off the main trail just before the big overhanging boulder near the Sherman Roof. Though it's best to just walk up from Golden once you've found it, to memorize where the trail is.
