State Park@SEMICOLON@ Fee Required. Details
Golden Gate Canyon is a State Park and a $6 (2010) fee is required for entrance. Self serve kiosks exist throughout the park. Annual passes can be purchased for $60.
DescriptionThis climb goes up good quality rock with the exception of a few sort of still mossy cracks. The crux is halfway up in the steepest section and is easy to protect (you could avoid this by going left, but then you'll miss out on the fun). If you continue up to Zephyr Ledge, you'll need a 70m rope to get down.
While the first and second buttresses of Mt. Thorodin have seen significant development, the third buttress has an obscure history. If anyone is able to shed some light on this crag it would be much appreciated. The FA listed here is simply the first known ascent.
LocationThis route is right of center on the north buttress of Thorodin and faces SW. This is in National Forest, not part of the state park.
Start is 20 feet left of the bolted 5.9.
Rap, lower, or continue up and to the right past a bolt and to the rap anchors and other routes on Zephyr Ledge. Rapping off Zephyr Ledge requires a 70m rope!
