BETA PHOTO: Bolt Locations


Climb a lower face past three bolts to gain a small stance below a bulge at the 4th bolt. Power over the bulge on somewhat hidden, but incut sidepulls and edges that get larger the higher you go. Above the bulge the angle turns to steep slab and the bolts become more spaced with a slight runout to the anchors.

Fun moves over the bulge but not as high quality as some of the surrounding routes - still worth a spin.

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

Ok route as "Golden Poodle" to the right will likely have a pile of people for a top rope session.

The line was difficult to follow as the lone bolt for "hootenanny" draws you over there just as you realize you should go left.

Nice enough moves and Chis is right that it's worth a spin if you're there anyways. A better guidebook could avoid any confusion on the routes on that wall.

I think I climbed this line...but with the squeeze jobs/variations on this wall I have no idea what route I actually climbed (not an uncommon case when relying on "topos" in Troy's guide). Maybe it was an accidental link up of the bottom of this and top of Golden Spike? Fun, if a bit confusing.
