State Park@SEMICOLON@ Fee Required. Details
Golden Gate Canyon is a State Park and a $6 (2010) fee is required for entrance. Self serve kiosks exist throughout the park. Annual passes can be purchased for $60.
DescriptionThis is a nice route up the middle of the second buttress of Mt Thoridin paralleling Mr. Misty (to the R). Hike about 1 hour from Panorma Point dropping into the drainage and then angling cross-country to the crag.
P1. Wander up overlapping plates of granite up and into a small corner/crack. Place pro high & R. Traverse L across a small slab 5.9. Move up and L to a tree belay.
P2. Angle out left with a L-leaning crack with a capping flake of granite. Fire around the flake and lieback up to a comfortable stance. Plan your moves carefully past the 2 bolts on the face. There will be protection not too far above the 2nd bolt. The holds will appear just as you need them. Continue up easier terrain to a 2 bolt anchor.
P3. Move L to a small corner and continue up using some holds out L on the arete. Pass a small roof and continue up easy ground to the top past a 2 bolt anchor.
Walk off L (recommended) or rap 180 feet and 165 feet from a tree to the bottom OR 80 feet, 100 feet, 165 feet from the tree.
