Diane Davis climbs "The Ecstacy of Gold"...


This route follows the highest quality rock at the crag.

The route is marked by a series of delicate moves for the feet and positive crimps for the hands. Super fun!!


4 bolts. 2 open shuts.

After having spent a dozen or so days at this crag during the past 6 months, my appreciation for this route has increased significantly. I have actually grown to regard this route as the best at the crag. The rock is good and the technical, sequential climbing has remained interesting even after the n-th ascent.

Probably worth noting that I bolted this, and thus the crag, when I saw this line with a thin layer of ice on it one winter and thought that might be fun to try. Turns out it was okay as a rock climb. Some guy I brought here once said "why would you bolt this?" Wasn't the last time I heard that line.
