DescriptionFool's Gold is the first (leftmost) route on the Corridor Face proper. It follows a prominent trough past a single bolt into and into a double crack system.
The cruxes are down low, at ten and twenty feet. The first is pretty much unprotected, but with a reasonably clean fall if you're well spotted. The second is slightly above your first gear.
The double cracks don't take gear the way you might hope, so don't pass up all of the pockets on your way up the trough.
All in all, a committing, relatively sustained, fun route at its grade.
