Machinegun is the right-most climb on 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.

This route is a very short face climb which is not that interesting. Climbaz.com recommends carrying extra gear, but this is pretty unnecessary.


Two bolts, plus chains.
