A wonderful hot-day granite climbing heaven. Can I say enough about it. It takes a little bit of time to hike to, and you want to avoid it during high runoff. The climbs range from easy 5.6 slabs to a steep 5.12. The majority of the climbs are bolted and rappells descend them.

Getting There 

Approach as per Pentapitch and then continue west into the gully, making a small traverse into the gully proper. There is an alternate approach, that meets the stream early and follows it in, but it is hard to locate and easy to get lost. My wife likes this approach better, as she hates the boulder field.

Just left of Hoffa Finger, this route slabs out a beginning and works through corners and roofs. The best part of this climb is the roof with a hand jam move to pull it. Very fun route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Revisiting this area and climbing most of the routes again or for the first time has made me realize what a great little area this is. Cooler than most of LCC granite, great surroundings and the consistency of most of the routes (Loading Dock excluded) amazes me. The routes stay near their level of difficulty most of the way. No one-move wonders here (except Loading Dock). Unfortunately, the secret is out, becaue the last time I was here, there were 6 parties here when I arrived and 2 more came after me.

Be somewhat cautious about this area in summer. HIghly popular, especially on hot days, these routes attract a lot of "campers" -- folks who feel that just because their rope is hanging off the chains that they are entitled to lounge casually until they're ready to give it another go. F**k that, as I told some new "friends", if you're not climbing it, get the hell off and give someone else a chance.

Anyone have beta on the 2nd pitch bolts around/above Hidden Agenda or Union Dues? Definitely, a bolted line above that area.

Be aware of rock fall in this gully, me and my partner were walking up the gully the other day after a light rain and a small rock slide hit us, luckily we only got a few scratches and no one got seriously hurt but be careful.
