Getting There 

Prisoner of Your Hairdo Gully is the second gully up-canyon from the Cruise Gully (the first is Grizzly Gulch, the major drainage you drive down to the "T" intersection; it has a sign at the top of the actual descent). You can walk from the CG, park at the "T" intersection, or (best) park at Narrows Overlook and have the car waiting when you top out. Cross the meadow that leads into the head of the gully and stumble down the gully.

Atlantis seems to be the talk of the town in the Black these days, for good reasons: moderate grade, with well-protected cruxes, great belay ledges, long route, not too much scary, loose and runout climbing. That being said, it is The Black, game on, be prepared for some loose, scary, and run out climbing, just not at the hardest grades on the route. Also be prepared for a long day with lots of pitches. The topo is plenty adequate, but I will provide some descriptions-pitch lengths are on the t...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
