Description 

Start 20 feet right of Golden Rose; fun, technical pulling on bullet-proof, yellow rock yields the crux (between the first and second bolt). Climb over the dark bulge to lichen-covered rock and the final, fun roof. It is a one-star route worth doing on the way to Frisky or a good place to take moderate climbers.


Protection 

6 bolts; chain anchors.

For "bullet-proof" rock, I sure did break quite a few holds on this turd.
