Marble gully is a bit overhyped and definitely dangerous! Poorly bolted routes with suspect gear behind fragile granite, coupled with a long hike up unmarked trails/scree make this a definite avoid area.

no way to safety reach the anchors to work the routes.

Spend your 3hour approach on driving to Tahoe or Smith Rock.

The few routes with mostly bolts are ok. I might go back if someone retrobolted the place and cairned the trail.
