Description

In the notch between the upper and lower sections of Ridge 1 are three bolted routes and Golden Shower is the middle of the three. It shares an anchor with the slab climb, Silver Saddle on the right (5.9). Start up GS in the system of huecos passing a small overlap. More overlaps and huecos follow to a final cruxy roof with a spooky finish. The rock here is largely very good, although the huecos can be sharp in places, and GS turned out to be much steeper than it first appeared. Silver Saddle provides nice access to the top if you are looking to get the draws on GS ahead of time.

Protection

Four draws and a rope.

10+ if follow natural line (slightly right and still within clipping distance), but 11+/12- if finishing direct, which is dirty and contrived. Mar 3, 2018
