Description

This is a really good, harder route! The holds are thin and there are two cruxes requiring some technique and finger strength. For me, the Crux was clipping the third bolt. I don't think that you would deck but be careful.

Location

6th route on the East side of the Shaft.

Protection

8 to anchors.

this is an excellent route, and the best one in the shaft. absolutely in your face about 95% of the time, from the moment you leave the ground until the end. this route requires a lot of things - crimping strength, the ability to use small footholds, careful body positioning, endurance, ability to read what's coming ahead.... for how short it is, gold is one hell of a route.
