Description

Golden Eagle starts about 20 feet to the right of Eagle Hardware after a small scramble up the right angling ramp. The climbing starts off the ramp on a short slab that rapidly steepens. For me, the most difficult move arose immediately at the end of the slab in hauling over a small overlap on very small, crisp edges. A short transition into the dihedral set up another cruxy move, in the dihedral itself. This was followed by more moderate climbing to the anchors. Overall, the quality of the rock was superb, often edgy, and typical of the best Boulder Canyon granite. Three stars for the quality of the rock, the climbing moves, and the continuity. Unlike Eagle Hardware to the left, Golden Eagle did not seem over bolted. The clips were all from stances and just where I wanted them.

Protection

QDs only. This route is about 80 feet long with 10 or 11 bolts and a double bolt anchor at the top.
