Access Issue: Agreement in place at Gold Wall. Respect signs and private property owners near the crags. Details


Note: This climb is no longer a 5.9 to the anchors since something broke on the face climb above the columns. Crack is still 5.9 and then the boulder finish is ~5.10b 2 bolts to the anchors.

This Crack sits just below the terraces on the left of the grotto, and uses a crack that gets quite large about 20 feet up. Sitting on the leftside of a column, this is just left of Hole in the Wall (5.10a), which sits on the front of the column.

Climb up the crack using fists, fingers, your forearms and whatever else you can use for hands while feet are available both in the crack and out. After the large section of crack, the rock splits, and climbing is easy. Move right once out of the crack system, where you'll find the upper bolt of Hole in the Wall a convenient clip. Finish using the shared anchors above the bolts.


Gear to 3", though you'll be fine if you leave things over 2" on the ground. 2 bolts protect the route above the crack, and the 2 bolt anchor is shared with Hole in the Wall (5.10a).
