Description 

The perfect line. Start on pockets and follow the golden streak through a small square inclusion, and some smaller pockets up high. Go direct to finish and not toward the flake to the right.

This is my vote for the best of its grade on Bishop Tuff, and possibly the best line on tuff on the Plateau.

A great problem. Great moves and high enough to add some spice. The new guide has it at V6, which may be a little generous. Who cares about the grade, the problem is a must do.

Guidebook calls this v6, it's easier if you are tall.
