Description

High on the left side of the canyon guarding the last bit of the approach to Ancient Kingdom is this large north-facing crag named for it's developer Raleigh Collins. Three known routes are found here on a large swath of desert varnish - The Rand (5.10a), Gold Strike (5.11b) and Reallly Good (5.11c) on the shady north face.

Routes listed left to right:

Reallly Good (5.11c)
Gold Strike (5.11b)
The Rand (5.10a)

Getting There

Approach as for the Split Boulder and then continue up the canyon another 10 minutes or so via boulder hopping and rough terrain to the base of the formation. Total approach time is about 20-30 minutes from the vicinity of the Short Wall.

I have been trying to figure out what the routes are on RC Rock. Does anyone know the routes on this formation in the photo? It has two really nice bolted lines and from what I have gathered there are supposed to be 3 or 4 climbs on this formation. i.e. The Rand (5.10a), Gold Strike (5.11b) and Reallly Good (5.11c).
I cant find the beta anywhere can someone email the routes or post them up?
