BETA PHOTO: Looking down from the top of gold plated..
Lower down to a small ledge just before you are completely surrounded by the namesake bright yellow lichen. Climb up somewhat broken and dirty overhung rock to the top, climbing two roofs in route. A fun route well worth doing but the dirtiness and slightly chossy nature of the rock detracts from the climb a bit in my opinion.
This is the last route on Shovel Point
. Continue down the trail about 50 yards past The Great Yawn
. This route is a bit hard to find, it is in a small corner near a small ridge that crosses the trail. I remember being somewhat surrounded by trees. I'll add better beta after my next trip to Shovel.
Webbing for trees.

A fun, heady lead! Hanging gear belay on the little "gold" colored ledge. Gear to 3"

Very fun. It looks more intimidating than it actually is.
