Description 

The Gold Card Indirect takes a striking line up the center of the main wall for a full 30 meter pitch. Climb through golden, bulletproof granite using a mix of crack and face technique. At mid-height just before the dihedral, place a piece high, extend it, and traverse left along the sloping ramp. Make a few committing moves (5.9) to gain the crack system and continue to the top with great gear (fun 5.10). The anchors are in a great location to top rope The Gold Card on your way down.

Location 

Lower off fixed carabiners.

Protection 

Standard double rack of cams and nuts.
