Description 

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.


Getting There 

Go to The Prow, then walk back towards the cars along the cliff top. This is The Gold Wall.

Waterslip Down 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  AZ : Paradise Forks : The Gold Wall
Waterslip Down is accessed (as for Grevious Angel) from ledges above and west of the Gold Pond. Getting into the route is pretty exciting business. Move to the eastern edge of the ledge and look around the corner and the finger crack you see is Waterslip. You have to place some gear, then crank up into the crack with instant exposure as you move over the void. Then just head to the top. Mostly fingers and wide fingers....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
