This route ascends a water streak that starts well up and right of If We Bolt It They Will Come (route number 711 in the 2007 guidebook). Approach by way of a class three/four ramp that begins just right of If We Bolt It (this is the same ramp that the route Desperate Abandon starts on). Look for a deep water streak/chute on the left, 250 feet up the ramp (unlike Desperate Abandon, Gold Line cannot be seen well from the ground).

Three bolts protect 50 feet of climbing to a two bolt anchor on the right.


See above.


Slings and carabiners.
