the rope in the gully next to Golden Labs.

Description 

The namesake feature of the north end of the Bulletheads with some classic hard climbs found on the upper ledges. There is a flurry of new route development at the base of this area. It would be great if there was a lower climb to access the Turkey ledge because now it is a very dirty 5th class rope pull up the south/south gully between Tantalus wall and the Bulletheads. There are old forgotten climbs that begin at the base that are dirty and overgrown.

Getting There 

If starting from the campground go north ( left ) passing Self Abuse - the crescent arch, Bulletheads East route, Liquid Gold, some slabs in the woods which are being scrubbed, above these slabs is the lower wall of Bulletheads north with Constriction chimney being the most recognized feature. the 11b finger crack Chimp Dip is further left up the trail to Tantalus, and go up the gully before you reach Tantalus wall. Follow the ropes till they reach a right traverse over a rotten log to gain the Turkey ledge where Eurasian Eyes starts at the arete.

GETTING DOWN:
There are a few different options for the descent. Either find a trail at the top and hike south ( right ) till finding the gully with a fixed rope that is between the Mañana wall and Golden Labs, or rap down the wall with Mañana. Or rap from Wild Turkey( no chain ) with a double rope to the level of the 5.9 traverse to the Fight Club anchor. Or go to the top of the Bullet , find bolted anchor facing Tantalus wall and rap into the South/south Gully ( 2-3 single rope raps down to Turkey ledge level in gully. Or find anchor on north end of the Bullet and make single rope rap to ledge and anchor of the top of Fight Club, then another single rope rap to top of Ren, and one more to Turkey ledge area. The anchor down and right of Turkey ledge and Eurasian Eyes ( start of 5.9 traverse to Wild Turkey ) could be used to make double rope raps down to base of wall. It could be done with a single rope but you will be on some old anchors and will need slings.

This is slightly left leaning shallow offwidth/flare. You end up getting good hand jams and finger locks galore all through it, which makes resting very possible anywhere, however, as there are no feet, it's a shallow, flaring and steep corner is it ends up being a total grovel fest of full body scumming, palming nothing and thrashing...pretty solid 35 meters of very sustained climbing, crux in the last 10 feet=) Once out of the flare you can head straight left on good ledge to dicey slab fini...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
