Description 

Begin up the ramp, just left of Black Gold. Pass 2 bolts (the first may be clipped from the ground). I found the crux to be clipping the third bolt. From here, run it out for roughly 25' on easy terrain to the 2-bolt rap anchor (shared with Black Gold).


Protection 

3 bolts, a light supplemental rack for upper half of route if desired.

I was surprised by how low the first bolt was placed. At 5'10" I was barely able to touch the third bolt with my quick draw, but couldn't clip it until I lunged, snagged it, and briefly held on when I lost my balance. If it was just a half inch lower I would have climbed it clean!
