Description

There are two cruxes on Golden Shower. The first is down low and the second is up high. The rock is a bit sharp (especially one left hand crimp on the arete) and the landing is a bit jagged so bring lots of pads and friends. One of the proudest lines in Bishop.

Beta: (let's see if I can remember this right) begin in the shallow hueco and move up to a good edge with the right hand. Then shift feet and bust out left to the arete and get a decent sloper. Shift feet and bump up to the aforementioned sharp arete hold. Move your left foot to the corner of the arete and right foot almost by your right hand and do the crux move to a right hand sidepull. Move feet up and bump left hand to a pinch. Heel hook left foot by your hand and do a big move to a good patine hold. Get matched up on the rail and move right on worsening patina and heel hook the aforementioned good patina. Reach up and get a sloper until you can bump over and get a crimp (upper crux) Rock over and grab the tear drop (or it is tea cup) jug. Whew.

Location

The route is on the arete that is on the uphill opposite side of the Beekeeper. Mesothelioma takes the downhill side arete. Starts in the shallow hueco. Downclimb either the V2X on the backside or down climb a series of pods and jump about 15 feet. There is also a drilled bolt on top of this boulder.

Protection

Many pads and spotters.
