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.

This climbs the crack/weaknesses just to the right of the broken chimney. It has some rotten rock, especially at mid-height. A couple of small finger locks, and knuckle-crunching jams, a few more lieback style moves, and a couple of lunges to fingertip holds. A tough climb.
