Description 

This may be thee most aptly named route at the Forks! This line, while striking from the base, ends up dishing out more than it's fair share of chossy sections both at the bottom and top. It would be a serious lead with very real fall potential simply from corroded rock which in sections crumbles away at the touch. However, the actual splitter section of this line produces an all out tips encounter on a steep and exposed section of the Gold Wall, and is actually quite good climbing with face moves intermingled with burly finger jamming.

Could get quite a bit better with more TR traffic=Cleaner.


Location 

Located just to the right of Goldfinger, a hanging garden of moss and choss leads to the obvious thin splitter.


Protection 

TCUs to 1", medium/small wires.
