BETA PHOTO: Goldstrike (5.9), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

Thin moves (crux) off a boulder pass the first bolt and lead to better holds higher. Pass a horizontal crack and finish on nice plates to anchors at the top of the formation.

Originally done with just two bolts (the 1st and 3rd) and gear in the horizontal it was later retrobolted to make the route better protected for climbers at the grade.

Location 

Located on the left side of the east face and just left of a small pine. The difficult looking line to the right is Harsh.

Protection 

4 bolts, chain anchors

I like this route a lot. Nice steep face climbing on beautiful rock.
