Top Flight (originally submitted as Black Nasty)
Butt shot of the upper crux.
I've heard this thing called .12d and .13a.
Some people thinks it's chossy shit, and others think it's one of the best routes at Golf.
A crux at the start leads to fun 5.11 up to the roof, where you will find a good rest. A crux getting over the roof puts you on big holds to the anchors.
This route can be climbed from the ground if you start on "Get off the Cart and Climb". Climb the powerful little boulder problem then climb slightly right to join "Top Flight". This start seems slightly easier then climbing off the stool.
This is between 'Burt and Ernie's' and 'Get Get Off the Cart (and Climb)'. It shared a start with Get Off the Cart (and Climb).

One of the better routes at the Golf Wall. 13a if you need the boost. 12d if you are local. Feel free to use the step stool around the corner, for the starting boulder problem.

Was up at Golf today, and the Black Nasty stool was smashed to pieces. We ended up hauling the remnants of trash down. Anyone know what's up with someone trashing this thing? I've never tried this route but watched many strong climbers get on it, all with the help of the stool.

Top Flight was bolted and FA'd by me in '93. Shared a start with Get off the Cart. Bummer about the stool being smashed. The old 2x4 ladder was also destroyed years ago that was used to start Cart and Top Flight. I had hoped this route would clock in at .13 but settled on .12c/d back then.
