BETA PHOTO: Goldfinger Rock at the Safe Zone, Joshua Tree NP


Start up lower-angled rock past some hollow gear placements and then into a great finger crack that steepens to vertical. The climbing is surprisingly strenuous for the length of the route, but the gear is good despite the left wall being somewhat slick and lacking in friction. At the top of the climb traverse left to a bolted anchor shared with Octopussy.


Located on the left side of the rock in a prominent left-facing corner with whitish colored rock on the left wall, and just right of Octopussy.


Gear to 2", 2 bolt anchor/rap (shared w/Octopussy)
