Description:

A T-Wall classic, this route sees more accents than any other route here. Walk approximatly 200 yrds. past In Pursuit of Excellence to a noticably long wall where the trail is widest, just past a large fallen tree. Golden Locks is in the center of the wall. This route offers great straight in hand jams, and finger locks on beautiful Sandstone. Pull over a cruxxy, overhanging start to a beautiful crack that continues to the top. The route gets slightly steeper toward the top so save some energy. This route also eats gear like it is going out of style and people often over protect the route and run out of gear for the cruxxy top section. Also, this route's grade is slightly sandbagged.

5 out of 5 stars Hard crack

Hard but easily protectable.climbed this on Halloween in full costume, lol. plugged two pieces before the wide part of the crack and gunned it to the tree. Scared out of my mind-Although the falls would be very clean- got it clean though.great route if you like straight in splitter cracks.

5 out of 5 stars Classic Route!

Super burrly first couple of moves off the ground then amazing jams the whole way. I recommend a couple spotters to keep you from hitting the pointed rock on the ground. After that enjoy the ride.
