Description

This route starts just right of If We Bolt It They Will Come (route number 711 in the 2007 guidebook).  Move up a long, wide, up-and-right class three and four ramp (the start of the ramp is shown on the topo on page 286 of the 2007 guidebook as a “mossy slab” ).  After three hundred feet, pass a very deep water streak on the left (the route Gold Line is in this streak).  Belay at a single bolt on the main wall, above/to the right of and outside of the streak.  From this belay, continue up the ramp, which narrows and eventually becomes a face.  There is one bolt 35 feet up this "second pitch" - right where the wall gets steeper.  Sustained 5.6 climbing leads past the bolt and then to the right, into a gully.  There is no summit anchor (although the top anchor for the route The Brosseau Finish is within reach after Desperate Abandon turns class three).

Note that the "length" of this route listed above includes the 300 feet of class three and four needed to approach about 50 feet of fifth class climbing.

Walk off the the northwest (under the route Cover Girl), or move down 25 feet to the bolt anchor for the route Gold Line and rappel back to the class three and four starting ramp.

This is a "discovered" climb which was found because of a long length of 7/16 inch Goldline rope which was visible for years, fixed on the upper face, running from the upper bolt to the top of the cliff where it was left “lassoed” over a horn.
