Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>
Stay tuned for an announcement of the transfer to the County, as well as an upcoming celebration at Golden Cliffs to commemorate the legacy of Mayford Peery, who donated the cliffs to the Access Fund in 1994. The event will celebrate 20 years of Access Fund ownership and officially present Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space.
This route follows a moderate slab to an airy arete higher on the route, clipping 4 bolts as you go. There are a few runouts that can be sewn up with small cams. The reachy moves at the start and the 3rd bolt will kept on your toes. Enjoy....
A few cams to 1", will protect the runouts before and after the first bolt.

Hey this is a great route and very fun. Good beginner lead. Starts off low and then the angle increases as well as the bolts. All the holds are there and the bolting is well done as the pitch and angle go up. I recommend this route. It might even be a three star for the rating.

Runout (for N Table) but the climbing is easy between the bolts. Plus it's longer than most N Table routes, so it's probably a good beginner lead.

I thought the route was pretty run out. Also, there is a big loose (basketball sized) chunk of rock around the 3rd bolt, so watch out. Tried to mark it, but didn't work very well.
FA was Deaun Schovajsa and Dave Gottenborg circa 1993.

Still a loose block near the third bolt.

Good lead route with a few nice rest points. I would suggest beginner leaders bring supplemental trad gear to place between runouts (definitely good spots for this), otherwise it could get real sketchy real fast.

Had my first lead climb on this for my fourth ever ascent. Pretty scary clipping [what I think was] the 4th bolt from around the corner (a little off route) 3 or 4 feet above the last bolt! Damn proud feeling of accomplishment. Banged out the 5.9 just to the left of this immediately after on top rope and seemed like a piece of cake with my confidence raging from leading this.

Difficult opening moves for 5.7 leader with no protection. Basically, it's a couple of overhanging bouldering moves and somewhat insecure feet right before a bolt at 20 feet off the deck. Factor in ground-fall potential for second bolt clip (although after admittedly easier terrain) and ledge fall clipping the anchors, and this route is potentially dangerous for someone new to leading. I for one would welcome the addition to 3 bolts to this route, which would add a nice beginner lead to the area.
