Description 

Awesome fun mixed crack/face/arete route, great warmup for the steeper stuff on the Tioga Cliff. This route was retrobolted summer of 09 and quite safe. Starts with a single bolt below a finger crack, climbs the short finger crack, then busts out awesome moves onto the nice arete above.

Location 

Obvious finger crack to an arete on the Gold Wall.

Protection 

.4-.75 camalot should do you for the short fingers bit. Lots of draws. 2 bolt anchor on top. 70 meter rope necessary for a lower off, and watch the end!

This sounds exactly like the climb the Mammoth area guidebook calls Proud Arete?

A great climb nonetheless with fun crack moves and great, steep face climbing.
