The start is a good foot with a slopey edge from which you can clip the first draw. From there, it slopers and clips. The crux is under the third bolt. It's a finger lock crimp on the left hand and a burly pinch on the right up to a slopey edge.


Follow the trail up the canyon to first ridge, follow trail the left, and it leads right to the base.


4 quickdraws.

It is hard to discern where this actually is. As has been pointed out by many, bolting is strictly prohibited unless for the repair/ safety of an existing route. I remember there being a short sport climb in the granite of Gold Star Canyon that has been there a while. I hope that this was put up before '92. May 14, 2011
If this area is in the Monument, any bolting needs to be authorized. If this bolting was not authorized, the situation needs to be remedied pronto. May 13, 2011
