State Park; 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 crack to the left of For Love of Mothernot that is easy and a hoot. It lies on the left side of the second buttress of Mt. Thorodin in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It could be considered a variation to For Love of Mothernot, but it is pretty different.
From the staging area for the CMC Route, scramble along a 3rd to 4th class ramp heading up & left as for For Love of Mothernot. After about 60 feet, find a belay at the base of a large tree (2 x 48 in slings to girth hitch). Look up and find the larger left facing dihedral with a crack between Outland and For Love of Mothernot.
Fire up the crack, pull into a lieback with slippery feet (brief crux), continue up the fun crack to the belay ledge with 2 bolts.
