Comments: as far as belaying in the gulley goes, i have always been told to stand clear of the gully and have witnessed rocks speed out of that thing. they call it helmet gate for a reason.

Comments: felt the first bolt is a little high considering the consequences of coming off before getting clipped in. no room for the belayer to spot. loose and dirty getting up to the first bolt. took a bad fall pulling out a hold below the first bolt. i would not suggest doing this climb or visiting this area.

Comments: i did not feel that the approach was worth the climbing. the rock is dirty and broken in many places. the first bolt on the 5.9 route is high. the belay stance is also unconfortable and unsafe. not any room for a spotter. i pulled a hold out of the wall and experienced my first groundfall ever just below the first bolt on the 5.9. too bad whoever bolted this climb did not consider saftey as a factor on such a dirty, loose climb. i do not suggest visiting the area.
