BETA PHOTO: The climb on the right is The Sting.
This is hidden gully that one can see before the leaves sprout on the trees that shield it. It is 1 gully past Autumnal Wall, and consists of 5.10+ bolted routes. It is shady and has no approach. Slightly overhanging rock with tricky moves are the game here.
Just before Storm Mtn. Picnic Area park at Stairs Gulch, and cross the stream aiming for the last obvious gully. Upstream is 1 mini-gully. Enter and climb.

On the left wall is a bolted line that splits at the 3rd bolt. The left variation is Frans, a tough face climb that looks easier than it is. A hard 1st bolt clip, followed by decent moves to the second, that can be clipped by using the bomber ledge. The 3rd bolt is the problem. Beware of the crack to the right as there is loose rock.
