Climbing Gold Rush. Follows the plumb line of the ...


Begin on a slabby start below the low roof. Make a big move out of the roof to gain the face. Once established on the face get a shake and prepare for 60ft of spectacular climbing. The moves become slightly more difficult up to a crux reaching the chicken head. Figuring out how to rest on the chicken head was crucial because it's the last good rest before the chains. The climbing above the chicken head is sustained and culminates with a dynamic move at the anchors.


Gold Rush is left of Mosaic on the overhanging orange panel. It begins with a low roof that is often wet and sandy.
