This route is located shortly after you crest the hill on the right. You'll see Goldberry Lane on Ered Lithui on the left at the top of the hill. Quickbeam is on the right, just before you crest the hill. There's a large boulder (rock fin) in the middle at the crest to confuse you a bit. Use your alpine route finding skills :-) I used John Pages green book ("Recommened Climbs...") for the approach.

Crux is getting to the first bolt and maybe a move past it. After 1st bolt, I climbed a bit right before angling left to 2nd bolt. Follow your nose to the 3rd. Then you'll wonder where the 4th is until you step up a bit. Don't worry about the run to the top because there's a crack a bit up from the last bolt and a great horn up and right of that.



4 bolts, the 4th is difficult to see until you move past the 3rd. It's a ways from the 4th bolt to the top but there's a good webbing sling (not a cord sling, too thick) around a horn about 10 feet from the top. If I would have brought gear, I believe I could have gotten in a tcu or 1/2 tech friend in between 4th bolt and sling.

The wide crack on the right is OFF route! Glad I had a cam on my belt to slot in that crack when I strayed over it for some beta-less on-sight fun though... =P
Fun moves. Go climb it.

This is an absolutely lovely climb but the idea of the crux being a grounder makes this a tough climb for a 5.7 climber. Once climbed, set up as a top rope and climb the excellent 5.9-ish face 10 feet to the left. If someone has the time to bolt this, it would make a great lead.

Oh please don't bolt anything else on this little spire. Nothing wrong with toproping, and there is always moonlight ridge if you need clipups near Sylvan Lake.

I found it difficult to locate the fourth bolt I believe. It appeared hidden behind a flake for me. I think I placed two good stoppers and there is a nice flake to sling before finishing! Awesome route I thought, great for 5.7 lead climbing in my opinion.
