The route climbs the obvious crack in the middle of the face to two bolts and then the anchor. The crack is about 5.5 and the crux is a frictiony move or two at the bolts. The rock at the crux is of less than stellar quality but the worst rock is avoidable.

There is a decent route to the left of the Golden Egg that is easily toproped from the anchors. It's probably about 10a and has 3 bolts.


The Golden Egg is located well beyond Razor Hueco Arete. Keep following the dry creek bed until you get to an obvious rock bench that often has some water runnning over it. Hang a right here. The route will be obvious shortly.


Medium nuts and/or cams, 2 quickdraws.
