|The Trad Lands
|Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>|
This is a great trad crack line with a really cool lieback on the upper half. Start in a crack on a slab between "Startled" and "Resident Bush". Head straight up the cracks as the wall gets steep, then feed into a clean, shallow right-facing corner that ends at a pair of bolts for a convenient toprope or lower-off. If you didn't bring gear, it's worth hiking round the top and reaching over the edge to rig a toprope.
Addendum: there is a TR variation of the upper half of the climb on the left. There is also a variation on the right, 5.7.
Standard gear rack to a pair of anchor bolts with rings.

One of the coolest [cracks I've] found yet at [Table], intimidating, but it sorts itself right out. Nice climbing.

Good fingercrack & stem moves in blocky sections, I used small cams and a hand-sized cam 3" (4.0 TF); crux section took a red Alien & was solid (I vote 5.9- for a couple of moves if you commit to use only the fingercrack at the crux). Placing nuts was a friggin pain & an exercise in futility for me.
