Description

(Gold Wall is AKA "Upper Central Wall" in printed guidebooks) This area is the Large Gold face to the right of the center wall/mini buttress and to the left of honeycomb wall. It starts about 150' up and contains some of the only two pitch routes at the chief.

To reach the belay of Gold Digger/Copper Feather/Golden Arch, One can either climb "Toilet Earth", 5.9, and then hike the bolted slab past a belay anchor about 70' up or 4th class about 40' left of "Toilet Earth", then scramble up the bolted slab. The "Copper Feather" summit anchors are about 90' from the belay, meaning that one can either rap in, or start at the base, with a single 60 m rope.
This Image was taken from a belay anchor on Toilet Earth. Copper Feather (12b R marked in red, Gold Digger , 12a Marked in Green)(For Gold Digger/Copper Feather/Golden Arch, It's a 45m/150' rap of the first 5.9 pitch. incorrect)
