This is a pleasant two pitch crack and face climb up a very obvious gully. It is very near where the approach trail first meets the rock. To descend, scramble up through a notch at the top and do a short downclimb on the other side.

If you take the crack on the left hand side of the Gully it is actually quite an enjoyable route (plus it bumpt the grade up to maybe 5.5).

This low angle gully is not worth the time needed to climb it. It's currently full of broken limbs, leaves, and pine needles from a tree that fell somewhat recently. The best thing about this route is that you can set up a top rope over above Captain Hook, Passtime, and Frustration by traversing left across the ledge at the top of this route.
