Enjoying the excellent 5.10+ start of Goldfinger. ...
This lengthy route climbs the center of the immaculate stone to the right of Stiletto
. A rock climber with even the slightest attraction towards aesthetics will be magnetically drawn to this line.
Climb through a ~20 foot band of choss to a small ledge and your first bolt. Continue up the just off-vertical face on five star stone for ~55 ft, moving between good edges and flakes (10d). Clip the bolt above the small roof from a slopping rail, then catch your breath before a series of thin holds and engaging footwork (13a). Continue directly into a puzzling 12+ finish to the only big hold on the route, exhale. Classic.
9 QDs, 2 bolt anchor. Small-medium gear for choss at bottom is optional.

Anyone know the secret to the upper section? I got past the crux (according to the guide) but can't figure out the puzzling 12+ section after the jug sidepull.
