BETA PHOTO: Plates of Gold.


This is a great long pitch with a little bit of everything. A nice slab followed by a big roof (which has been climbed by a 5'4" zero ape index female), beautiful plates, a crack and thin face.

P1 5.9+/10a) Climb the slab past a bolt to the middle of the large roof above. Turn the roof at a bolt, then angle up and right to the base of a large V flake. Turn the V flake on the right at a bolt, then climb beautiful plates up and left to a left-angling crack. Follow the crack to its end, turn a small overlap, and climb past 2 bolts (on Dragon Slayer) to the anchors atop the second pitch of Dragon Slayer.

Continue up Dragon Slayer or rappel.

Descent: rappel Dragon Slayer, or rappel to the anchors at the top of Possibilities and rap that to the ground. ***A SIXTY METER ROPE IS REQUIRED.***


This is on the right side of Main Crag right of Dragon Slayer. See the photo.


Five bolts, nuts and cams to 2.5", and slings for plates.
