Description

Begin on a slabby start below the low roof. Make a big move out of the roof to gain the face. Once established on the face get a shake and prepare for 60ft of spectacular climbing. The moves become slightly more difficult up to a crux reaching the chicken head. Figuring out how to rest on the chicken head was crucial because it's the last good rest before the chains. The climbing above the chicken head is sustained and culminates with a dynamic move at the anchors.

Location

Gold Rush is left of Mosaic on the overhanging orange panel. It begins with a low roof that is often wet and sandy.

Don't miss it. Such a clean fun route with a great "surprise" ending! Sep 21, 2014

This route is so good. Sustained and flowy 11- to the 7th bolt, a crimpy boulder problem to the next bolt, a bit of a rest, then another crimpy boulder problem culminating in a throw to the finishing the jug. Avoid the big sucker jug flake out left at the top and commit to the big move. Apr 11, 2017

Did I cheat by going left at the top and getting in the hueco before traversing right to clip the chains, or is that on route? Feb 4, 2019
