L to R R to L Alpha
This is an organizational entry to help with L->R sorting that would not otherwise work for this crag. These are routes that ascend above the Tourist Gully (a low angle ramp starting at the south end of North Gateway Rock) and are above the right end of the West Face.
Park at the North Main Parking Lot and walk around the south end of North Gateway Rock to get to the Tourist Gully ramp. Carefully ascend 3rd class terrain (which can get sandy) to access these routes. There are some large eyebolts along the ramp that facilitate belaying more safely.

After securing your belayer to the second large eyebolt on Tourist Gully, begin the climb up thin, hollow, flaky, Garden-type slab climbing to a small bulge near the second piton. From there, you can progress over the bulge straight through or do a funky right layback. A few more 5.9 moves will get you to the last bolt before a scary runout left traverse to the anchors. Don't be scared.... It's not as bad as it sounds (as long as you don't fall)....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
