L to R R to L Alpha
The grade will depend on the length of one's arms and skill with roofs, as the crux is pulling over a 3' roof on this route, with gear on a long sling below (make sure it is solid). The crux can be protected additionally by the horizontal over the lip, where budding 5.9 leaders will get a kick out of bomber heel-hooks and a mantle. Continue up the right of two cracks (the left being Gold Member) to the top where the two cracks merge and then end. From there, traverse leftward over exposed space, protecting with a solid, finger-sized cam in a horizontal, to reach a set of fixed anchors with chain.
This is the right-most route on the 'Gold Wall' group, a group of climbs forming the left (South) vertical horizon if you look in that direction from the central area of the Golden Valley.
Gear to 3.5" cams. Up top a bolt and chain anchor.
