The Gold Wall is the south-facing side of the canyon where the Gold Pond is located. This encompasses all the rock from the Three Yogis down to The Prow. Classics are East Of Eden (10b), Goldfinger (11), and Acid Test (12). A very sunny, warm place to climb.
Go to The Prow, then walk back towards the cars along the cliff top. This is The Gold Wall.
