DescriptionThis narrow gully is a perfect, warm weather area with steep, granite cliffs that receives almost no sun and a constant flow of cool air. The right side, which looks and climbs like Rifle, is known as the Trifle Wall. The left side is more typical of granite with familiar features like cracks, seams, and edges.
Most of the routes are bolted and range from 5.4 to 13d, with the majority falling in the 5.11 to 5.12 range. Although the climbing is great, the ground is steep and loose which leads to rocks (some very large) becoming dislodged and rolling down the gully when people move around. That said, this area is not kid friendly, and helmets may be a good idea.
