Bob climbing the original Scottish Gully at Ouray.

Description 

This is probably the easiest of the routes in the lower part of the gorge below the bridges. Nonetheless, it is fun, popular, and a good place to practice a variety of techniques...including no tools, no crampons, or even the combo of the above. It can be mixed, but it is usually fat. It's also a great intro to ice climbing with a bit of character. Ascend the gully.


Location 

This route lies below the lower bridge on the west side of the gorge. It ascends a deep groove/gully. It's the lowest angle thing in the vicinity.


Protection 

Screws.
