Working Timberland Details
April 19, 2017: Weekday access to the Gold Bar boulders has now reopened following a temporary closure to ensure public safety during harvest activities associated with the Dyno timber sale. In partnership with Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition, DNR preserved access to much of the road network hikers and climbers use to access the Gold Bar boulders.

DescriptionOn the back (north) side of the boulder, on the far right side, there is a series of sloping rails. This problem is a sit start on slopers that moves up and right to top out on jugs on the face above. Easily identifiable by the opposing sidepulls about 12 inches apart on the roof. Fun problem involving a bunch of heel trickery (for me, anyway). Apparently the lowest start gets a 7 and the higher rail start gets a 6, but there doesn't seem to be any difference in difficulty.
Good beta picture of it here: http://0friction.com/image.php?image_id=11542 I don't know who took the picture, so I don't want to actually post it.
