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

The route is easily visible from the parking lot. Look for the flat face of Deck Chairs on the Titanic on the fin of rock sort of protruding from the rest of the cliff. This is the slanting crack to the right.

Route Description

Pink shirt is on Killians...

Fun but short. Start in the same spot as Killians Dead.

Climb up to the right to the beginning of the slanting crack. Then follow the crack to the top.

Essential Gear

There are no bolts. Bring slings or cordelette to build a top rope anchor or a light trad rack to lead it. It is very protectable.
