Description Suggest change

This is the gulch to the west of the Coal Pit Buttress and immediately west of Pentapitch Area. It has east (Waterfall Wall) and west facing walls (Industrial Wall), so depending on what you hike up for you can chase shade throughout the day. Most folks will be coming up here to climb on the Industrial Wall slab like routes. which face west (morning shade / afternoon sun / evening shade) The steeper East facing wall where the uber classic Cool Your Jets lies will get morning sun, and quickly disappear into the shadows for the remaining of the day.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for Pentapitch Area. At the well worn flat base of Pentapitch Area walk west along the cliff base (well worn trail) and pass under the classic Sasquatch and Ginseng routes above. You'll see the gulch open up and hear the year round stream flowing.

At the "top" of the well worn trail you'll see The 40th Loss directly across the gulch. You'll have to take a few more steps up to look at the Industrial Walls slabs on the other side.
