The route is the highest route in the gully on the west side of Castle Rock. Approach from the south side trails. This one is a real gem!!!Follow a clean plate of patina with very thin edges. Hard mantles, crimping, and high steps lead up and left to a set of anchors. One of the best routes on the west side....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

You can downclimb from the Hostess Gully routes (also Big Time) by going to the north side and downclimb the narrow arete to a big ledge, then move back southwest onto the vertical face and with some back and forth traversing, you end up at the top of the Hostess Gully - should you ever find yourself on top without a rope.

Probably 5.5 after you have done it a few times.
