Gabe on GEM near the Pumphouse
This cliff is shady almost all day as it faces NW and is very overhanging. The approach used to be a bit harder but due to the fire and recent development at the Chessman it is pretty casual now. It is a good idea to warm up at the Chessmen.
Park in the pull out at MP 9.2 just past the bridge. Hike up drainage until you can work left on trail then up to base of the Chessmen. Continue left and up along the base of these cliffs until you are forced around the left side of a broken up arete. When you reach the skyline the pumphouse will be 100 feet or so above you. From the base of the Chessmen it will take maybe 5 minutes.
