Access Issue: State Park@SEMICOLON@ Fee Required. Details
Golden Gate Canyon is a State Park and a $7 (2010) fee is required for entrance. Self serve kiosks exist throughout the park. Annual passes can be purchased for $60.
Climb the shady west face of Grendel, starting on a platform about 50' up the talus. Follow the most obvious line of thin cracks through two orange tiers, passing a large roof to the left at the start of the second tier, and then go up a final groove to the top. Either traverse right to a bolt anchor or continue to summit and downclimb north and back west. It is very fun climbing but there is lots of lichen. With traffic, this would earn three stars.
