Dottie Cross leading Poking Holes ...

Description 

One kinda crux move is stepping off the ground onto the climb. Very mellow but fun climb recommended for beginners, good bolts, big holds, cool featured rock!

Location 

Directly ACROSS the gully from the mail wall facing east. This route is 60 feet below or left of Scorpio which is directly across the gully from "Ho-Ho". Climb starts right off the trail!

Protection 

6 Bolts will get you to the fixed anchors on the ledge above and your rappel.

Short and sweet. A great warm up for a day in the Gully or as a final climb as the sun goes down and your arms are burning.
