Gold Wall is a more remote version of the South Face of Washington Column. The route follows long crack systems up beautiful rock. The stellar 5.9 hand cracks on the second half of the route would be chock full of people year-round if they were closer to the Valley floor. The Ribbon Falls area provides stunning views of the Southwest Face of El Cap as well as Bridalveil Falls and the Leaning Tower. Gold Wall is about as hard as Southern Man or Skull Queen.
