Low down on the route before it gets thin and hard...

Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>


This climb is thin, sustained, burly, and very sequential.


This is left of Pinkerton.


Bolts to chain anchors.

Got my hat handed to me on this one today. Amazing, thin, powerful, less-than-vertical, face pulling. Will work for a send. Great line!

This climb has become slightly harder than it was originally, when I first climbed it in April 2010. I was going to rate this climb 5.12b, but the redpoint went down easy enough in the evening shade I decided on 5.12a/b. Henry Lester called it 5.12a. The climb has gotten harder at the 3rd bolt, from a foothold edge breaking off.
After returning to this climb almost 4 years later, I agree that it definitely deserves 5.12b and maybe 5.12b/c.
