This is a pleasant, if short, pillar just below the area of the Scottish Gullies downstream from the lower bridge in the Ouray Ice Park. It is in a section of short climbs, perhaps 4 pillars here. Perhaps neglected (in my experience) but nonetheless a fun quickie if most of the close to the bridge routes are occupied. The name is appropriate.
Find this by dropping downstream from the Scottish gullies (By Gully
, Ach Mon)
perhaps another 150 feet (across a small meadow) to the last climb before the 5 fingers area. There is a bit of exposed rock with 2 bolts for anchors.
You may find a low angle bit of ice before this 25-30 foot pillar. Climb the pillar which can be less than vertical but thinner at the top. There is a nice rock crack just to the right of this climb.
A few screws.
There are 2 bolts just above this.
Gillian Collins whooping it up!
