Improbable looking crux section on bullet hard rock. Leave your packs to the right of the gully where it is flat rather than at the bottom of the gully where rocks might hit them. We belay off the rap anchors at which are also the first bolt of Rocky Road. If you rap down rather than downclimbing the gully we have been tossing the rope just the the left of the tree. Better that it hits an agave than the prickly pear a few feet right.


This wall is known as the Bowling Alley as anything knocked loose at the top of the gully goes down it. Once at the start of the climbs this is not an issue. Climb the gully right of the Lorax (see Hyrax). At the top where it is choked with talus move right to sloping ledge with belay anchor.
