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 slab route of good quality, but it seems to be the shortest route on the cliff. It will challenge those shorter than 5'10". Some such folks will argue for a 11-ish rating.
Go up and right on a ledge to clip the 1st bolt. You can back down to the ground to add a few more moves. Pull onto the slab, make a high step with your right foot, and stay in balance. Move your feet up high with small hand holds. Reach far and right to a relative bucket and find a balanced position to clip the 3rd bolt. Move back left and then continue up on easier terrain to the anchor.
