  • Description 

    Start 20 feet right of Golden Rose; fun, technical pulling on bullet-proof, yellow rock yields the crux (between the first and second bolt). Climb over the dark bulge to lichen-covered rock and the final, fun roof. It is a one-star route worth doing on the way to Frisky or a good place to take moderate climbers.

    Protection 

    6 bolts; chain anchors.

    For "bullet-proof" rock, I sure did break quite a few holds on this turd.

    Eric, Are you sure you were on this route & not the route to the right "Steel Pulse". I have climbed this route numerous times now. Seems pretty solid for the most part. There are several interesting sections: The start past first 2 bolts, past 3rd & 4th bolts & the wild, committing mantle over a bulge onto a sloping shelf, above 6th bolt. Love it! Good warm-up for Frisky Cliff.
