DescriptionHome to one of the most popular routes in PK, the Golden Wall area is tricky to reach, but worth every effort. Four of the several routes have double-bolted anchors. The amphitheater gathers the sun's heat on cold days, and with so many routes in close proximity is the closest thing to a "gym-like" atmosphere with a group. Routes from 5.6 to 5.12.
Getting ThereExit the upper parking lot far end, go through the meadow and past the stream, to the large clearing. Turn right on the carriage road, then go left at the immediate fork. Follow the carriage road to where it starts to curve back; you'll see a blue/yellow triple blaze leading straight off towards some large boulders (bouldering area). Get to the first boulder and turn left off the blazed trail, heading towards the cliff, trending leftwards.
You're looking for a hidden canyon that is to the right side of the Skink face. Find a big slab of rock; to its left side, either squiggle under or make a few 4th class moves over a notch, and you'll see your target.
