This is the route that starts 30 feet to the right of Gold Wall. It follows the obvious thin splitter up to a few bolts then a right facing corner. One more pitch gets you to the bolt ladder to heaven.
200 feet of 3/8ths bolts, and 2 bat hooks get you to the all time A1 splitter crack this route is known for. 185 feet of nailing bliss. A few more awk, and strenuous pitches bring you to the rainbow ledge bivy. Pretty good for 2, and a great view of the falls.
On the right side of gold wall, heads straight up the middle of the headwall. Can't miss the bolt ladder.
Thin nailing rack
Rappel the route in 5 full length (200ft) rappels.

Super amazing route. Thin splitter on perfect rock. Stellar clean aid testpiece. Leave the hammer behind and help preserve this awesome and raw route. Crux is C3+ 4th pitch.
