Description

Gregory is located in the Gregory Hills subdivision and has the highest concentration of climbs(around 85). Access the top of the Rims by chimneys just west(left) of Center Face or via a poison ivy guarded via ferrata ladder at the far west end just past The Cliffs of Insanity.

Getting There

Take Rimrock Rd to Gregory Drive to Gregory Dr North and Rockwood Circle to access Gregory Hills. The approach trail starts by the fire hydrant. It meets the rims at the route Excuse Abuse(photo 16 of 17 , photo 17 of 17 is just to the right/east. The route photos will go in decending order(from 17of 17, 16 of 17, 15 of 17 etc.) as you head west(left). Photo 1 of 17(Cliffs of Insanity) is about 1/4 mile west(left) from here. Sorry, Mountain Project posted them out of sequence.
