Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>
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.
Also, I suggest moving to the left crack below the roof earlier rather than later. Going out the roof is more like 5.9, with some fun-but-tricky moves to surmount. 5.8 is fair for the crack that goes just right of the roof.
The photo for the route shows a guy moving from the left side. However, there is a challenging and fun start starting off to the right. It DEFINITELY feels harder than 5.8, and its a reach clipping the bolt, so you might think about a spotter.

Direct start is probably 10 to 10+ depending on height, IMHO.

Typical Table Mtn. short route fun. The direct start is most certainly reachy, but more fun and aesthetic than starting on the left. I would guess it would push the grade to 10-.
This is a fun route and isn't a bad option when the crags are crowded since you can climb parts of this route many ways. You can do a direct start, left start, body chimney start, etc. I think I climbed it four different times and ways before moving on to the climb next to it.

I think it's 4-bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Very cool to try to go straight up under the roof. Definitely some seepage while I was on it. Don't know if it's always like that.
