State Park; 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.
DescriptionThis is a short but good quality route that lies just to the right of an obvious chimney and the route Moonshine.
The start had good hand holds but slippery feet. The crux seemed to be getting your feet high and lockoff for the 2nd hold. Mark Rolofson feels the crux is at the 3rd bolt. Move upward on some good jugs. You can stay slightly left of the bolts and find small but good edges...or...you can traverse right at the 3rd bolt and go for a slap for a sloper (harder, probably 11+ per Mark Rolofson). Either way, continue up easier moves to the 2 bolt anchor.
