Peder on the low crux of Oro y Plata
Potential road closures in winter. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Two boulder problems separated by a bit of easier climbing. Like the other two climbs on the Gold Wall, this one is both technical and burly. Stick with the upper balancy crux. Once you figure it out you'll be all smiles. Although the shortest on the wall, this one has the best climbing and the best rock. Shady til' noon and after 7pm in the summer.


Location 

While looking up at the Fins from the parking this is located on the left side of the lowest fin. Cross the road and head up the left side of the lowest fin. Follow the base of the fin for about 5 minutes until you come the Gold Wall, and obvious south facing wall with gold and blue streaks. Oro y Plata is the left-most line on the wall.


Protection 

4 tightly spaced bolts lead to ring anchors. Bring a stick clip for the first bolt.
