Jay working through the crux


"This route's belay is where the main trail meets the rock wall. Follow the right-facing dihedral and pull left under the roof and up to a stance. The climb meanders up the prow to the anchor." - 2008 Ozone Guidebook


Far left of Gold Wall, below the prominent roof.


Gear to 3", 4 bolts

Love this route. My first route and the first route at the zone to have lead bolts put in....hence the name.

Good route. This route protected well with nuts and a 1" and .75 cam.
Following the bolts closely up top felt more like reachy 5.9, cutting right at the crux was 5.8.

Thanks Kev, really fun route! the crux felt more like a 5.9 to me as well, especially if you're under 5'10" (but was the most fun). going to the right was slightly easier and less exposed. Route protected well until you reached the bolts. Right D-link anchor was loose enough to spin but the bolt seemed secure, didn't worry me but felt it was worth mentioning.
