Short but super fun. Climb up the obvious line of pitons and bolts toward the anchor.
At the "GHS" petroglyph area up high on the east ridge. If that doesn't ring any bells, follow the ridge up from the south side, not climbing any harder than 5.1 until you're standing on a ramp that says GHS, amongst other things. Make your way down into the gully to the north by scrambling down to a notch in the boulders. This way is a bit sketch and requires some ninja skill, but totally doable. If you're not into it, scramble back down the ridge until you can make your way above the wall behind the route, keep going until you reach the chimney which can be down climbed into the gully.
There's two questionable pitons and two bomber bolts on this route - typical. Some small cams/micro nuts could help to protect the bottom, also a #2 c4 will get you between the bolts.
