Beautiful meadow climbing just near the creek. Be prepared for gawking and lots of questions ("who put those bolts up there?; how did you get the rope up there?; did you go to the top?) from the several hikers that use the trail into the canyon.

I left a rope in a blue rope bag at gateway crag yesterday (Saturday 4/21) and I checked this morning but it wasn't there. If you found the rope or if you know who did, please let me know. Thanks!
