The left-most climb on the Gold Wall.
Climb up a short crack and work right and up to the top of the red wall. A reachy crux is harder for short folks. Finish on a nice layback and touchy slab.
This is the furthest left route on the Gold Wall.

Fun climb - beautiful rock, great crux moves! Not sustained for the grade and kind of short so I can't give it 3 stars. Requires a sense of style to not go far right to bypass the crux high step move. Taking gear for the upper crack isn't worth the trouble.

First bolt seemed a little too left. Was able to start on obvious crimpers to the right and step into the finger crack. A couple of fun cruxes as noted above. Pretty neat rock on this one. Check out the crystal blob below the anchors too.

The position of the first bolt tries to force you into staying more in the crack/seam. Done this way the crux is at the first bolt. A more logical start would be to move a bit right to the good holds. Unfortunately the first bolt is in a poor location when going this way. If starting a bit right the crux is the high step shown in Jason's picture 3/4 of the way up the route at 11b/c. 3 out of 5 stars to me.
