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, chalked face of Deck Chairs on the Titanic on the fin of rock sort of protruding from the rest of the cliff.

Route Description

The start. 14 Apr 2004

This is a wide slab on a section of cliff that juts out a bit from the rest. It is bordered on the right by the crack of Killians Dead. This is a popular route.

The true route starts below the first bolt and heads straight up. There is a variation to the start that begins to the left in or around the crack and traverses back to the first bolt. Some say this is easier, others say just as hard.

Essential Gear

This is a bolted sport route with anchors at the top easily reachable from the top.
