A somewhat interesting gully with a few shorter sections of "real" climbing.

Getting into the thing requires some stemming. Then travel up the gully to a quartzy off-vertical bit-- climb that and angle up and right* in a trough. Finish at a short face and top out.

Alternately, you can head up the left wall of the gully and your chances of finding a walk-off are higher.


Approaching from the loop-parking lot to the east, follow the trail down the stone stairs. This is the first wide gully on the left.

Getting down... You could probably down-climb. Or jump across to the east and then walk off. Or do a Needles Style Rap. We left some webbing and rapped down. ie., no anchors and getting down is an adventure.


Single rack with nuts, runners. Used WC #4, #3.5, #3 for anchor in a horizontal at the top. No fixed gear.

If anyone has a real name for this let me know. I don't think an FA'ist would bother to lay claim to the route, but I figured it's worth cataloging in any event.
