BETA PHOTO: Campfire Crag (S. Face Right), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Follow the gold streak up the gritty slab with the crux moving past the first bolt. Once past the last bolt it's a little runout but the angle kicks back and it gets much easier.


Location 

The obvious gold streak/stain left of Picnic.


Protection 

3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8"). Optional 1.25" piece in the horizontal between bolts two and three.

Strangely there are two bolts side by side at the second clip stance. Both spin a little, and both look new. Take your pick.

Both bolts are coming out and one hole will be patched and one hole filled with a sturdy protection bolt........(just haven't gotten over to do such a job yet....maybe tomorrow?...thanks...)..
