Description

15 feet of fun climbing that is kind of a pain to get to and leads no where since the top fell off, haha.

Access the route by climbing rock du jours 1st pitch but branch left into a corner with regular hangered bolts to an anchor on the big ledge, then lead The Thang as a second pitch.
You can also, (as i did) climb Gold Bug, then continue up Gold Member cheating off of draws if you like and continuing up the Thang in one long pitch! you can lower off to the ground with a 70m rope.

Once you are actually on the route it is over too soon! A tough mantle move at the first bolt then 2 bolts (10 ft) of an amazing flake. You could do a hard mantle to a nice huge ledge but there is no anchor so you might just want to call it good and lower off.

Originally a risky trad climb, then it got some bolts up in it.

Location

look for the conspicuous crack/flake directly above Gold member which is above Gold Bug.

Protection

3 bolts. NO ANCHOR
there were two fixed draws to lower off of when I did it (though they were quite sun bleached)
