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.
The Bastille Crack of North Table, which is to say that it almost always has a line waiting to send it. The climb is a bit easy for 5.9, but if you limit yourself to "between the lines" it gets closer to that grade.
No line last Sunday! The first bolt is actually a little high for my taste. 4 bolts.
Actually if you don't like the section before the first bolt (which might be the crux), I discovered you can climb up to the left and reach right off some jugs to clip it. Then downclimb and begin directly under the bolt for "full credit".
Probably fair at 9- but I find the 8+ on the arete to the right to be more challenging from the mental perspective. The first bolt on this one is not that hairy compared to the bolting of other routes at Table.

It's much harder if you stay in between the lines.
