Isn't this called "Golden Staircase"? I don't know what the guide book says(and the Horst guide is pretty so so if I recall correctly - check the old Carderock book) but just go up the crack. hard for 5.3 - good old school rating and 5.8ish is right on for the first move or so. Fun solo.
Timmamok, My understanding is that Golden Staircase uses the face to the left of the crack. The "grain" of the rock changes a couple times in a short distance up there and its a great climb-- just left of this crack.
As others have said, the opening move is way harder than 5.3. The first time I climbed this route was on toprope and it was no big deal. So I thought it would be great to practice leading on after starting to learn that. 5.3, right? On a solo lead, that opening move turned out to be awfully sketchy. After that, the climbing is pretty easy until the very end, where the last move to the top is a little tricky as well. But on toprope, you probably won't be doing that move.
