Start at the ledge right of Gold Rush. Trend right to climb the arete.
Grade given in 1994 lowland outcrops as E1 5a but in current edition is VS 4c.

Not E1 5a or VS 4c. I'd say HVS, bold easy 5a at bottom then good gear to top

It ain't no VS, that is for sure. A serious climb for the first 10m.

Good route. Nice moves at the start. Pretty much no gear until the end. Only placed 2 nuts.

David Stevens 07/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Tried this thinking it was a VS, was a long way to the first gear

Really good climb ...The start is a bit scary because of how high your up with no gear on the mantel shelf part ...then on the arete is bomber for gear ...gear on the climb was bomber. Mike had to ab down to get out a super awsome placed cam....Score!!!

Bouldery start but easier up top. Fun.

Is VS 4c in my Lowland Outcrops. There's no way i'd commit myself to that mantle move with only 1 useless microwire for protection. Should be HVS 5a due to bad protection and chance of really hurting yourself if you deck out on the pointy rocks.

In the guide as VS, the first section did fell very scary with no good gear and some committing moves. Nice route, would prob give it HVS.
