Description 

This short, heavily featured face is just left of Coyote Crag and home to several well-protected moderates - Hidden Gold (5.7) and Gold Bug (5.8), as well as one longer one - Gold Standard (5.6).

The base of the wall requires a little scrambling to reach and is somewhat uneven, making this not a child or pet friendly area.

Routes listed from left to right:

Gold Bug (5.8)
Flash for Hash (5.8)
Hidden Gold (5.7)
Gold Standard (5.6)

Incut plates and edges past two bolts lead to a steeper section of rock (crux) as you move up and right past two more bolts, and then finish up the shoulder of Coyote Crag past three more bolts. The view from the anchors are expansive and well worth checking out. Rap/lower off, although rappelling is probably better for your rope! For the grade there's not a better route at this area, and this is another climb that would be ideal for somebody just getting into leading....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

This is a good wall to hit when Coyote Crag is locked down. Not so pleasant, though, on those hot summer days.
