The Gold Wall is the major wall to the left of Ribbon Falls. If sports excellent, well featured golden granite, and at least one excellent route. Layton Kor's "Gold Wall" follows the central crack system through the huge roof at mid-height, and the "Silent Line" is a free variation to that route.
Driving out of the Valley, you'll pass through El Cap Meadows. A few hundred yards past the meadows, look for the first dirt road on the right. There is a small sign that says "V9" marking the turn. Park here, or continue up the road if it's not too muddy. Stay right at the first fork in the road, and then pass a few huge woodpiles as the road starts to switchback. After the last switchback, the road makes a sharp left turn. Look for a small cairn on the right marking the start of the trail.

The Classic Layton Kor route, that splits the wall right up the middle. Thuggish climbing down low, leads to interesting aid as the original route moves up and right to TRON ledge. A very sporty pitch off of the ledge leads to the Belly crawl feature (one of a kind!)The route continues up stout hand cracks and can be rappelled up to P 9 as of 2012...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
