Description

This is power crack climbing and liebacking followed by a nice face. It is one of the best routes at the Palace.

P1) 5.11d. Start as for Golden Harvest, then angle right into a lieback feature (a #4 Camalot is handy), continue angling up and right following the weakness to a ledge. Move right, and follow bolts up the face to bolted anchors.

Location

This is just right of Golden Harvest.

Protection

TCUs to an old #4 Camalot and bolts. A few medium stoppers are handy. Bring lots of long slings.
