Description:

On the left side of the rock is a prominent, less than vertical slab. At the center of this slab is a bulge which also serves as the crux. This route has relatively new bolts which were solid, and a set of new anchors at the belay station. 1 short pitch follows.

3 out of 5 stars A Great Adventure

"Goldline" is not a sport climb, but well protected at the crux. Careful of that long runout between the 5th bolt and the anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Hot, Hot, Hot,

In the parking area the thermometer read 105 degrees. "GoldLine" is long and meanders, but not an issue as a solo. Although a bit chossy, the moves are easy and it's a fun climb. Nice view from the top. Take plenty of water.

3 out of 5 stars Bolts & Anchors Everywhere

Roped solo of the Goldline. Fun!! On the 2nd pitch there are bolts and anchors within easy reach on either side of Goldline. Replaced the old rusty 1/4" bolt with the decrepit SMC hanger with a new 3/8" X 4" Powers 5-piece bolt, in a solid inclusion.
Although not hard, this is definitely NOT a sport climb. No one at Texas Canyon mid-week.

3 out of 5 stars wandering

Route wanders a bit on the long second pitch. Some of the gear is old. 2nd pitch is pretty run out even though it is easy. Rock quality isnt great and lots of little rocks are always coming off.

3 out of 5 stars Golden on Goldline

Rope solo. 5 bolts on P1, crux well protected, but 35 ft. runout to anchor. Old sketchy anchor with allen bolt and homemade hanger replaced with 2-ring Fixe anchor. Fun climbing on moderately chossy rock.
