I thought this was .10d and Heathanistic was .10b? That's what it felt like, at least.

Nick- You are correct. Gold Dust is definitely 10D and Heathanistic Pursuit is 10B. Both routes take good gear and are SWEET!

Both this and Heathenistic Pursuit can be climbed when it is raining--just a heads up. They are awesome routes! Cold in the winter and mosquito-y in the summer though. Bring Repellent!
