Description 

Another tech & burl combo on this one. Climb straight up past the Golden Hole using mostly good holds on the vertical wall. How's it 5.12, then? It's generally giant reaches with bad feet. The hardest move is leaving the Golden Hole (may be height dependent), but the technasty above could easily spit you off as well. Very beta intensive. Can easily be top-roped from the Copa de Oro anchors. Shady til' noon and after 7pm in the summer.

Location 

While looking up at the Fins from the parking this is located on the left side of the lowest fin. Cross the road and head up the left side of the lowest fin. Follow the base of the fin for about 5 minutes until you come the Gold Wall, and obvious south facing wall with gold and blue streaks. The Golden Hole is the center line on the wall with the arching bolt line.

Protection 

5 tightly spaced bolts to ring anchors. Bring a stick clip for the first! The base is a sloping slab and a fall going to the first bolt would not be good.
