Stay tuned for an announcement of the transfer to the County, as well as an upcoming celebration at Golden Cliffs to commemorate the legacy of Mayford Peery, who donated the cliffs to the Access Fund in 1994. The event will celebrate 20 years of Access Fund ownership and officially present Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space.
About 40' left of The Ground Doesn't Lie. Climb a dirty/broken chimney/dihedral to a ledge, then up the face following the three bolts present. Two bolt anchor on the face where it finally gets interesting.
Both my friend and I climbed this route today (8-8-09) and it was not a fun route in our opinions. The run out to the first bolt is long and unnecessary. The run out between bolts 1 & 2 is also long. The route felt more like an 8 instead of a 7. The line was full of loose rock and debris. We will not waste our time on this one again....
Climbed with Tom... If you go to the right of the last bolt (and anchors for that matter), it's VERY brittle and loose. May not be safe. I ended up having to go left both times to feel comfortable with holds that didn't move.
Easy to protect runout below bolt 1, and between b1 and b2 if you want, with nuts or cams. Cracks are still a bit dirty, but not a problem. Some of the potential holds on right of upper section do feel a bit weak, but plenty of choices. Maybe the loose ones are gone now.
