DescriptionAt the top of the main gully, just right of the Buddha Cave, you will find two bolted climbs. This is the left one. Boulder up until you can layback and stem your way up to the Buddha ledge, then continue up moderate climbing into a corner. Follow this up and then the route arcs off to the left to gain a steep jam crack finish. Pumpy! Good climbing in a fun setting. It may need some recleaning, as it was not in the previous guidebook so received few ascents over the last 10 years. It is definitely worth a rescrub if that is so.
Note- If you have to pee while up here, please walk down the gully and away from the routes and cave or it will reek. Show some respect to the Buddha.
LocationTop of the main gully- this is the left of the two bolted routes just right of the cave.
This area is often closed in the spring for Peregrines. When they are not there, ravens will often nest just to the right of this route. When the ravens are there, even if it is technically not closed, please avoid them. They will scare the shit out of you and drop rocks on you anyway if you don't.
