Access Issue: State Park@SEMICOLON@ Fee Required. Details
Golden Gate Canyon is a State Park and a $6 (2010) fee is required for entrance. Self serve kiosks exist throughout the park. Annual passes can be purchased for $60.
This splendid crack climb would be at right home at Cookie Cliff, or any other granite crack climber's crucible. It is well-protected throughout.
Dude's Jam Crack is one of the more obvious landmarks on the proud south face. It is straight and tall, from bottom to top, in the center-right of the face. If you climb to the top, walking off the back is easy.
Standard rack, up to a #3 Camalot. An RP is helpful up higher in the "changing corner" section. There is no fixed anchor on top, although before the final 15 feet, it is possible to lean over and clip the bolt anchor for the route to the left. If you intend to build your own anchor on top, a couple of extra medium pieces will come in handy.
