Clip Clip Here, Clip Clip There.  The route starts behind the Arizona Madrone tree on the left side of the gully and generally follows the arete.  View of the Base of the Climb.  Bushwhack up the wide gully to the start.  Pitches 1 and 2 can be combined with a 60-meter rope, though the rope drag can be significant when you reach the "vertical wall" section at the top of P2.  Rupley Tower C.  Pitch 1 of R3 starts at the arrow on the bottom right and ends at the chains indicated by the arrow at the middle left of the frame.  P2 works the cracks up and to the right, and ends up top.  The top arrow and waving gentleman mark the location of the 2-bolt belay station for P2.  Rap off the back side of the tower with another 2-bolt setup up top.   Looking at the base of the climb.  Six bolts trend to the left at a 45 degree angle to the chains for the first pitch.  Looking at the start of the climb.
