Description

This line continues above Almost Seven (aka Golden Earring) and has tremendous exposure, interesting movements, and huge jugs on it way to the top. Step right at the roof and take the path of least resistance to the top of the climb. Make sure to extended any gear you have in the roof very long to avoid rope drag on the overhang. You will need to build a gear anchor above the overhanging face, and then scramble over the bulge and down to the standard Amphitheater rap station to descend.

This is a much more interesting finish to Almost Seven (aka Golden Earring) than the traverse out left and is highly recommended.

Location

Climb Golden Earring in the Amphitheater, but instead of traversing left at the roof, step out and right to gain the steep face above. The climbing looks more intimidating from the ground than it actually is.

Protection

standard NC rack -- gear placements abound.
