Mostly west-facing, this gully has some fine slab routes, some great rock, some bad rock, and some moderate cracks. Not a location for the faint of heart as the approach borders on comical, and none of the easier routes are well-protected. Romance on the Rocks, Altered States, A Bright Shining Lie, are just some of the fine lines.
Caveat: My approach information may not be the best. About 50 feet up canyon form the archives road is a weak gully. Work your way up this gully, bushwhacking and trail-finding the entire way. Work your way further west through clearings until the main gully is attained. Climb up this gully.

A Bright Shining Lie 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Altered States Gully
Up high in the gully on the east side, you will see the obvious right-facing dihedral with nice white granite and sharp edges, this is Cheap Thrills. A little south of this is a ramp that works right, climb this ramp to the one bolt anchor at the base of the line. A Bright Shining Lie then continues up the slightly gritty face. The only scary move is off the piton that looks like it has seen better days. The moves up higher seemed to be the crux, but all in all, a very consistent climb.
