This fun warm-up route is on a small orange face on the far left side of the Gong Show.

Climb up to a ledge above the eroding hillside. Make an unintuitive move out right at the first bolt, then follow a wandering path of least resistance up the golden slab. You will likely use the right-hand arete at some point.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor


Far left side of the Gong Show Wall. While heading up the talus trail, stay left towards the more westerly-facing orange gold slabs. This area also contains Self-Contained Unit.
