Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures & Rockfall Mitigation Project Details

Description

Start on the shoulder to the right of Solid Gold, just left of a gully/crack system. The first bolt is about 10 feet right of Solid Gold's first. The crux is passing the third bolt. From there, continue straight up, and across the left-trending crack system. The second section is steeper but has positive holds. Continue up to the left margin of the roof. Climb the left side of the roof block. It's exciting but not hard. One bolt above leads to the anchors at a big ledge.

From the anchors, its easy to connect to P2 of Solid Gold. Its 5.4 climbing with two bolts.

Location

Start 15 feet right of Solid Gold's on the right margin of the grey rock.

Protection

9 bolts and a two bolt anchor with chains.

Good chance this has been climbed long before, I pulled 2 pins out of this line a couple years ago. Sep 6, 2016

My partner knocked a huge block/flake off this yesterday above the roof. She was right of the bolt up there I believe. She says she stepped on it, and there is another similar flake slightly higher. I'm not sure if its stability has been affected by the lower flake's exit from the wall. Be careful, it was plenty big enough to kill people. Sep 10, 2016

I'm fairly confident this was climbed a long time ago. We did it maybe 10 years ago. The looseness of the rock had me treading super carefully so as not to kill my belayer. I think that made our rating of the pitch higher than 8+. Sep 11, 2016

More 5.fun climbing at Creek Side! Stellar roof with jugs galore and a thin friction crux. The 3rd bolt crux here felt just as tricky, if not more, than the 3rd bolt crux on Oyster Bar to the right.... Sep 26, 2016

Looks like there are bolts added above the top anchor to allow a connection over to Solid Gold / Playing Hooky? Is this now an alternative P1 start to those longer routes? Mar 13, 2017

I thought this was a great addition to Creekside. Worth hoping on this before Solid>Playing, or after! Fun climbing with a mix of CCC personality. Jun 23, 2017
