This climb heads up cracks on the far left side of the Alcatraz Wall. This is the last major crag on the east side of the creek as you head down through Jailhouse Rock. To get there, continue down the creek past the point where it makes a 90 degree left turn below the Cell Blocks. Continue downhill past several bolted routes on the left (40 to Life, Mr. Meanor, & Mug Shot). At the bottom of the hill look up and left to see the Alcatraz Wall. Hoosgal is an easy gear lead up a fractured buttress. Gear placement isn't always as easy as the climbing, but this is a good beginner route.
