Description

5.10a (sport) 70ft Gold Rush is the centermost climb on the top tier of the Prospector crags south face. The line ascends though an open face and over a bulge to the anchors up top. The crux occurs low on the route when ascending a moderate bulge into balancy crimpers. Continue straight up to the overhang and commit your hands and move. Big positive crimpers await just out of reach for the average height person. After passing the overhang it is a cruise to the top. Spectacular views from up top of the surrounding crags.

Location

Gold Rush is the centermost of the top tier climbs. It starts off a large flat ledge next to a juniper and moves through low ‘steps’. To access the bottom of the climb either ascend the first tier climbs or scramble the approach gulley on the east side to gain access to luncheon ledge through the notch. Anchors up top for rappelling in if that is preferred. Be careful not to knock rocks down on parties below as there are a lot of small stones ready to trundle off luncheon ledge.

Protection

7 bolts to chains up top.
