You can downclimb from the Hostess Gully routes (also Big Time) by going to the north side and downclimb the narrow arete to a big ledge, then move back southwest onto the vertical face and with some back and forth traversing, you end up at the top of the Hostess Gully - should you ever find yourself on top without a rope.

Probably 5.5 after you have done it a few times. Nov 23, 2012

Honeymoon in Almo is not the furthest route to the left. There is a 5.9 that climbs several small roofs/bulges about 15 feet left of Honeymoon in Almo. Pretty fun route. May 27, 2014
