The original Golden is an extension of Space Shuttle to Kolob, moving out and left from the pod where Space Shuttle finishes and continuing up for 70' more of solid climbing. Todd Perkins, responsible for much of the route development at Welcome Springs, left this as an open project which Chris Sharma first completed.

Does anyone know what the rope situation is for the route? Would an 80m be long enough?
