Description

Goldfinger is a decent route up a small (300ish foot) pillar in the middle of the imposing east face of Jebel Rum. One long pitch of max 5.6 climbing gets you to one high quality finger/ hand crack in excellent rock. Another sandy pitch leads to the top of the pillar. No belays are bolted except the last one. Rappel the separate rap route to lookers left of the pillar.

Location

The route ascends an obvious pillar in the middle of the east face of Jebel Rum, easily visible from the village. The money pitch is barely visible from town.

Protection

Two sets of cams to 4" and a set of nuts will do. maybe some extra finger size cams if pushing your grade.
