DescriptionThis route seems to form up less frequently than Silk Road. It is longer and more sustained, too. The climb follows the gully that ends in the gash.
Start at the bench where the regular summer route begins. From here, make your way into the gully on your left (we ended up climbing down around 60 feet before some less slabby terrain allowed an easy transition into the gully). Follow the gully to the top. The crux will likely be between the tree and the spot where the gully doglegs slightly to the left, however the climbing is interesting almost the entire way. If one is feeling adventurous, one can summit. However tunneling through the gash to the bench below the first rappel off the summit provides some entertainment, too.
