Description [Edit]

Awesome mixed face and crack climbing. Only gets 2 stars in he book but so far it's my favorite route in the area. Take an easy approach on the left or a bolted 10a pitch on the right. You can lead it in a long single pitch if you start on the left and are mindfull of roap drag but I recommend doing it in 2 pitches. Also be mindfull of some loose rock. From the P1 ledge you can lower the 2nd to the ground with a 70 then rap.

Location [Edit]

Right of the main Gold Wall formation. Look for the obvious hole midway up the 2nd pitch.

Protection [Edit]

I placed a single cam(#1C4) and clipped 8 or 9 bolts I think.

This climb was also one of our party's favorites. It has a bit of graininess to it but nothing that detracts from the climbing. I placed a couple small finger-sized pieces but that was about it. They were kind of nice down low but probably not mandatory but the book said pro to 2" so I took a bit of rack with me. Aug 23, 2016
