with the 1.5+ hr approaches many still won't get up there, but I dig the fact that another moderate is available.

Not sure I understand the upper part of the topo showing where "gold wall" is and where "gold wall raps" go. But that's probably just because I've only ever done just the first pitch of Gold Wall.  (site of one of my 'quitting big walling' incidents LOL)

This route joins Gold Wall for it's final pitch. Where the 10th belay is shown is a long narrow ledge. Gold Wall does not climb to the ledge, angling down a ramp 8 ft. above, but rappels down to it and continues down from it's eastern edge. Very obvious once you're there but thanks for the feedback.
