DescriptionClimb the obvious arete and slabs to the right of Goldrush and left of the Silver Stage. This route is quite loose in a few spots and is not recommended for those seeking something less than a truly "alpine" experience.
P1. This starts on the ledge right of the mine shaft near the base of Goldrush. Climb the left-facing corner past a few bolts, traverse right through overlap to a nice handcrack, 5.9.
P2. This is a long pitch with mostly good rock, but some really loose blocks at the start that should not be trusted. Yarding on bolts can make for a safer-ish experience, bolts and gear, 5.11a.
P3. Climb the upper headwall, bolts and gear, 5.11, not recommended.
Gear: a single rack to 2", quickdraws, and 2 ropes.
