Great rock and great moves on this one. Crux will slap you right away as you leave the station. Crimpy holds on golden rock soon lead to easier and cool climbing above.


Use the first set of anchors on Lower Echelon and bust right up the slab and A0 ladder to the anchor of the business pitch. You can also do Chick Dead as a warm up and rap right into the Tricky Goldy anchors instead of doing the first approach pitch.


Pitch 1: 9 Bolts and an A0 3 bolt ladder. Pull on draws to pass.
Pitch 2: 8 Bolts to bolted anchor.

This route is called Tricky Goldy from the continuous loop tape of trip-hop we played during the FA and beyond. I could never remember whether the artist was Tricky, or Goldy, and used to badger Mick with the same question day in and day out... Is this "Tricky" or "Goldy"? It all seemed to fit since the route is on gold rock, and is certainly tricky. Aug 22, 2007
