Comments: The first real pitch, the 11+, is bouldery and cool. Hard moves. Good quality stone. The second 5.11 pitch, steep hands, is good climbing, but the rock is poor and birdshit is everywhere! Breathe deeply... the rest of the route is ok. I think it's a good route to do once if you've done everything else on the S. Rim. Definitely would not do it again, but it is not a bad day out.

Comments: We brought a single #4 and single #3 Camalot. You could go without the #4, but it was nice on the second pitch. Great climbing, amazing rock. A few of the 5.12 pitches have a calcite varnish on them that makes it feel like limestone climbing! Pretty cool position on the wall, but we did get scorched by the sun.

Edit to add: the traversing pitches are pretty cool! They do go hard left! When in doubt, just keep on traversing.

Comments: there is a fixed stopper at a good stance for the first pitch anchor, add a .5 or .75 camalot to back it up. the second pitch can be ended where you feel most like chilling; there are a couple good ledge/stances that would be good belays. build your own anchor.

Comments: Curious, anyone know the meaning of the name 'Taivallista?' could it be a latin soap opera? enquiring minds would love some Wasatch history

Comments: this pitch is great! I liked it better than Shingo's other Gold Wall gem, the P-38.

we were a bit confused about how to join the Gold Wall and ended up bailing after the first pitch. To clear up subsequent misadventures:

at the bolt add a nut or small cam to make belay atop Da Black and Gold (P1). traverse far left to the far left side of the gold wall (P2). this will join with the top (or thereabouts) of the first pitch of the Gold Wall. from here, traverse way right under the roofs a... more >>

Comments: We also moved out right after about three 'bolts' and traversed back left into the anchor for P1. traversing R definitely looked easier than staying on the grittier rock on the arete proper. The machine bolts looked ok, and there's gear to be had between them to make it a manageable affair.

Really glad we got on it. the placements are cleaner now! 11b,10,10,8.

Comments: great shady route! Possible to link pitches 2 and 3, which also gives you a better belay stance, with a 70m.

P5 has two options right off the belay, either the more direct line which is a bit sandy but no harder than 5.10- or the right fist crack, which we didn't do, but might be a touch harder than 5.10+.

Rapping with 2 70m ropes: double rope rap, double rope rap (to the top of P1), single rope rap to the ground!

we brought doubles from tips to #3 camalot and a single old #4... more >>

Comments: It might be good to watch your ropes a bit on the raps, we had a few snags especially up top. chimney pitch is crazy!

Comments: I am curious if anyone knows how this route came to be named 'the Headache'. There has got to be a story there, and it might be a good one!

Might be the best 5.10 coupla-pitch route I have ever done. each pitch could stand alone and still be pretty darn good.

Comments: wow, it's amazing how much cleaner this part of the pitch looks now! not as much lichen... this route will get really good if it's just a bi cleaner overall! - seems to be the Lone Peak theme

Comments: I am pretty confident that the 25 feet at the start of the third pitch are easy 5.11, but definitely 5.11. A fall on the initial boulder problem could potentially be a ledge fall. After you get to the obvious flake (after the boulder problem), pulling the bulge above the flake is kind of on you, as well. Good climbing, need to go back and get it clean!

Comments: we went right at the big roof on pitch three, pulling the roof through juggy hand jams. this route will get quite a bit better if it cleans up a bit more, but the hard parts are clean enough.
