Description

The longest line on the Gold Wall and an excellent warm-up. It breaks down into three completely different sections. Vertical mostly jugs into perfect slab climbing (probably the crux for most) into a compression boulder problem at the top. Because the anchor is quite a bit higher, you can top rope both of the 5.12s to the left from this anchor easily. Just place a directional on the way down. Shady til' noon and after 7pm in the summer.

Location

While looking up at the Fins from the parking this is located on the left side of the lowest fin. Cross the road and head up the left side of the lowest fin. Follow the base of the fin for about 5 minutes until you come the Gold Wall, and obvious south facing wall with gold and blue streaks. Copa de Oro is the right-most line on the wall.

Protection

7 bolts to a sport anchor. Bring a stick clip for the first! The base is a steep slab, so a fall going to the first bolt would be very bad.
