This is the largest collection of established problems in the area. The rock is all good to great with many difficult and steep problems. A few are quite tall or intimidating because of the landings. If you are going to see other climbers out here this is probably where it is going to happen though it is still unlikely. Being in the bottom of the gully and tucked in the big trees the area is quite sheltered from wind and sun.

Getting There 

From the Lower gully area continue up the gully until you see the scoop face. The rest of the boulders are lined up as you continue up the gully eventually walking under Pinball Simulator.
