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. 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.

Route Description

 
Nancy begins leading Killians...
 

Short route. Just follow the crack up.

Essential Gear

There are two new bolt anchors at the top but nothing on the route itself.

This is a good place to bring a light rack and practice some trad. 4-6 placements will get you to the top.
