This route lies about 20 yards left of "Road to Utopia". There is a bush growing out of the rock at the base. Climb face past four bolts to a ledge with an oddly placed bolt. Move left then climb golden rock past another bolt to the anchor.


Six bolts, two bolt anchor.


yes, indeed, this is a really nice climb. Much more interesting to climb than it looks (i.e., it's not friction slab at the top!)

Nice bolt placement, too. Apr 30, 2016

Nice line, fun moves with a few crux moves. Top with the orange colored chert was done a variety of ways from our group. Fun. Oct 29, 2011

This is a nice addition to the area with good protection, varied movement and a casual approach.

Climb up featured rock past holes and jugs to a stance at the 4th bolt where a balancy highstep gains better holds and then a ledge. Clip the next bolt (5th) with a runner, shuffle left on a ledge and then up rust-colored intrusions to a tricky hand/foot match sequence and the top. Three stars out of five. Feb 22, 2010
