|Good, fun climb, a nice place to take a new climber or someone new to Eldo. Be carefull moving too far to the right from the Juniper tree, it makes the anchors very hard to find. Aim to the left of what looks like the summit point.|

North East Gully. Probably not worth its own listing in the database but worth a mention here. I took my kids top roping here and really enjoyed it. Allowed them to get a long pitch in (~35 meters), I had to belay from the top with a 60m rope. Went at about 5.0, possibly a little harder, not 4th class though. Belay setup was on blocks at the top of the gully, bottom of start for "The Bulge". You can sling said blocks, and there are a lot of great stopper placements in the area. You will need long webbing or a static rope to cut down on the V angle. Take the Wind Tower climber's trail up.
It was great to work on communication with my kids for future multi-pitch, taking in the rope "that's me!" etc. Downside is some loose rock and poison ivy at the base of the gully that is easily avoidable.
