This is a great moderate route. Start off on blocky rock to access a right facing dihedral. Continue up the dihedral until you mantel onto a nice ledge. From the ledge work you way up the stem box 5.9, to perfect jugs at the top out.


On the far (climber's)right side of the Gold Wall look for an obvious low drainage on the rim. Standard Forks climbs just to the left.

This route is the left of Black and Sassy, and to the right of Rush' n' Arete.


Single set of TCU's/Cams, medium/large wires.

Make sure to bring really thin gear for the top half, not too safe without.
