Start on the arete to the right of White Gold, which is the very left end of the Knob Wall wall. Lay back the arete to the right to start, then pull up on pebbly crimps to the right of the arete. Continue to follow the face just to the right of the arete until you meet up with the top part of White Gold. Finish on White Gold.

Descent Options:

Rappel from one of the many sets of rings at the top of the cliff.

4 out of 5 stars Classic mixed route

It's a bouldery start but once you are standing you can seem in a pretty good nut placement then there is a bolt to protect the next couple of moves. I did this one just nuts and hexes.

3 out of 5 stars Brutal on the tips

Flailed miserably on this one for a while. Once I had the moves worked out, it was almost doable. Should go back and try this again on toprope when it isn't 100 degrees out.
