The route starts from Gemini Bridges Road
in Little Canyon
, climbing gradually up a vast expanse of sandstone. Continue straight at the intersection with Gold Bar
and Little Canyon
The grade is mellow for a bit longer until the junction with Rusty Nail
. From here, things get more strenuous as the climb steepens.
This section tops out and starts a short downhill as the Gold Bar
joins from the left. This part of the route is very steep and challenging all the way to the rim.
Enjoy the view and then continue on either Gold Bar Rim
or Golden Spike Jeep Road
