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.

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