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 probably the easiest of the routes in the lower part of the gorge below the bridges. Nonetheless, it is fun, popular, and a good place to practice a variety of techniques...including no tools, no crampons, or even the combo of the above. It can be mixed, but it is usually fat. It's also a great intro to ice climbing with a bit of character. Ascend the gully....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
