Climb up to a pedestal and into a nice hand/finger crack. Initially awkward moves lead to nice edges and jams. The crack becomes wide at the top and gear becomes sparse, but a few easy moves find you at the anchor for The Gold Shut Route.


It is between Nine To Five and The Gold Shut Route.


Gear up to #2 Friend. Two bolt anchor.
