Golden Escalator (11a; Central Bubba, NRG)


Golden Escalator is a 65' bolted route with positive, fingery holds and great movement. The long run to the first bolt is easier, after which the face becomes gently overhanging.


To reach Golden Escalator, take the gully that leads down between Central Bubba and the Beer Wall. Go right from the bottom of the gully and around the corner. Golden Escalator is the first route on the gold-striped wall, just to the left of a large, overhanging block.


4 bolts, with the first at about 25 feet. 2-bolt anchor (actually 3, but one is old).
