Plumb Line Gully Rock Climbing
Plumb Line Gully is just east of the thumb, and consists of a good mix of routes. For starters the short but great Plumb Line (trad), next door is a runout 5.11d bolted line. Next to this is a trad 5.6, and so on and so on. 4 routes face south, 3 west and like 6 or so east. Other than the west facing routes, the rock is good and the climbing is well worth it. I have heard that the west-facing routes are of poorer quality, but I haven't checked it out.
Park at the Gate pullout and hike towards Green "A", but instead of cutting up the boulder field, angle across it gaining elevation. The dark streaked cliff west of Kermit's Wall is the Waterfront, hike past this by picking up on small trails that cut their path near the base of the cliffs. Near the west end is a chockstone that hinders travel. Get beyond this and Plumb Line Gully is to your right.

P1: Overhanging handcrack/flake to a slab with 3 very closely space bolts. Super Classic Mantle moves! Slab is somewhat mottled. Burly moves at the bottom, seems more physical and less technique than Plumbline... (.9+)P2: A lieback, finger to hand crack on a broken face. Difficult, sustained climbing up an arcing break. The crux comes early on past the second protruding tree, then a redpoint, technical/power crux comes up high at the mini-roof/undercling. Buil...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
