Scottish Gullies Rock Climbing
Getting warm in a cold, cold world January 2014 P...
This is a subarea created for better organization. It will include routes below the bridges near the Scottish Gullies. Obviously, with an ice park, the routes will vary with spigot proliferation; however, much of this terrain has already been filled in, but then again, there are bolts for mixed routes.
For the time being, these routes will include: By Gully to Stubbies.
There are a limited number of top anchors (bolts) in this section.
These routes tend to be fairly short, especially in the Stubby to UK Garage section.
Hike up to the ice park, or drive and park. Then go downhill from the lower bridge on the western side/far side of the gorge. You can easily reach this area going uphill from the downhill end of the gorge by hiking uphill from town. Most folks will rappel in or be lowered in to climb these routes.

This is nice gully that feels sort of Scottish just below the area of the Scottish Gullies downstream from the lower bridge in the Ouray Ice Park. Perhaps neglected (in my experience) but nonetheless a nice alternative for those seeking easier, beginner lines like By Gully if most of the close to the bridge routes are occupied. Find this by dropping downstream from the Scottish gullies (By Gully, Ach Mon) perhaps another 50ft (part way across a small meadow) to the 4th to last climb before the ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
