Description

A rock corridor between the main Mary's Bust buttress and a wall of golden stone behind it.

Getting There

Three options:

1) Hike up to Moonlight Rock and traverse right (down canyon) on the ledge on the top of the Left Buttress. Clamber over a big boulder that rests above The Devil's Backbone to reach the base. The hike begins at the big north-side pullout on Hwy 34, and goes more-or-less straight up from the parking pullout. The gully is kind of gnarly and unpleasant; about 20 minutes. 

2) Hike the normal trail to Mary's Bust, turn right, and head up the gully on the right side. A stream runs down this gully in the spring (can be icy in winter). About half way up, you should see a majestic cedar on a big ledge: Aim for the right side of the ledge, go behind the cedar, and continue along the exposed ledge to a mantle at its end. Above this, a short 5.0 slab must be negotiated. Continue up the gully and go through the pass behind Mary's Bust to arrive at the base. Also roughly 20 minutes. 

3) Climb a route on the main wall or the Left Buttress. Sparky's Cooler or The Beak can be done quickly (combine pitches). Head right from the top of the route on a big ledge, and scramble up and behind the big boulder.
