Description Suggest change

Start 15 feet right of "Golden Gate". Climb a vertical face up a short arête past 2 bolts to a roof. Step left & clip the 3rd bolt under the roof's lip. Pull over the roof (.12a) along a short, left-facing corner past the 4th bolt. Take a good rest above the roof on a 1" wide foothold. Make a blind reach over a small roof to clip the 6th bolt that protect the crux. Traverse right around the roof to a sharp sidepull. Reach poor crimpers, & dyno to an undercling. A strange move off the undercling reaches a sloping shelf. A final hard section, past the 8th bolt gains jug. Stroll to the anchor.

Long slings are recommended on the first 2 bolts to reduce rope drag. I clip the 2nd bolt with a short quickdraw & a long sling on the same biner into the bolt hanger. Once I've clipped 3rd bolt, I reach down and unclip from the short quickdraw on the 2nd bolt. A long draw is nice on the 7th bolt, because clipping off the undercling is dicey. This route has a wild crux sequence.
