Trend up and right on nice edges


Located on the left side of the mouth of the gully is a nice orange patina face with a few bushes on the right side of the wall. Cool Hands Luke starts at an udercling on the far left-hand side of this wall.


7 bolts with bolted anchors on top. To reduce rope drag, skip the 5th bolt.

[Hide Comment] Added quick links to the bolt anchor. One of the slings I removed was red on one side and white on the other. Wish I had mussy hooks or I would have added those to the anchor. Apr 23, 2013
