Yeah, I am pretty sure Gary missed these as he slammed beers and free solo'd this wall back in 83'. Good find in 92'.

The three routes I posted from Tony Calderone's new Ferguson Canyon Rock Climbing guide for this area are: Golden Crack, Golden Flake and Golden Worm. Some of the FA information is incomplete in this guide, which I am sure is not a lack of effort or research on Tony's part, his books are great in many ways. If anyone has more complete information on these routes I'm happy to adjust. Thanks
Also, these three routes are really fun to climb back to back to back as bouldering problems, somewhere in the 2 to 3 star range. With gear and rope it might not be worth the hassle, as they're really short
