Approach

Park at the Golden Cliffs climbers parking (see Getting There in main text) and proceed up the trail to the base of the cliffs.

The route is not visible from the parking lot. Once you reach the bottom of the cliffs head to the left. After about 30 feet you are there. This route is on a west facing wall.

The route with a good view of the chockstones

This is a deep crack with some off width climbing. There are two fantastic chockstones.

Simply stay in the crack. It is deep enough that at some points you will be shoulder and hip in.

Essential Gear

No bolts on the way up but there are two anchor bolts up top.
