This popular link-up combines the lower portion of Black Bart
with the upper portion of Motherlode
and avoids the hard sections of both those routes.
Climb up and left along tricky thin edges past three bolts to a ledge, clip a bolt on the left wall of a shallow dihedral and then stem your way up the short corner to a low-angled arete passing two more bolts to anchors.
6 bolts, chain anchors

I went up initially going for Black Bart but after getting thoroughly confused by the slab finished left and bagged a red point. Climbing to the ledge is really fun but the arete is sort of dull and puts you in a bit of no man's land at the top. I clipped on Golden Nugget's anchors - rapping off to clean the route was a little tricky but worked fine enough.
