Description:

Three pitches of slab climbing and one traversing pitch to link up the route. Starts on the far lower left of Duty Dome. P1 ascends a moderate slab. P2 traverses right past two well spaced bolts to a fixed anchor. P3 is the signature pitch with solid sustained 10a slab climbing. P4 goes right and up to fixed anchors. We descended by rapping down and right to the anchors for Straight Street. The anchors are not obvious to find and the rappel is close to 100 feet so watch your ends.

4 out of 5 stars Heart of Gold

Fine slab climbing, slowed down by my stoner friend getting lost on pitch 2. Third pitch is the money, it's fantastic slab climbing up uniquely featured rock. We walked off to the climber's right - were gonna do another climb but that gully gets a ton of sun and makes beer in Leavenworth sound better.

4 out of 5 stars Fun!

very fun climbing. Combine with Prime Rib (3p., 5.10-) on the warrior wall just above Duty Dome for 7p of sustained slab.
