Description 

This is a pleasant, if short, pillar just below the area of the Scottish Gullies downstream from the lower bridge in the Ouray Ice Park. It is in a section of short climbs, perhaps 4 pillars here. Perhaps neglected (in my experience) but nonetheless a fun quickie if most of the close to the bridge routes are occupied. The name is appropriate.

Find this by dropping downstream from the Scottish gullies (By Gully, Ach Mon) perhaps another 150 feet (across a small meadow) to the last climb before the 5 fingers area. There is a bit of exposed rock with 2 bolts for anchors.

You may find a low angle bit of ice before this 25-30 foot pillar. Climb the pillar which can be less than vertical but thinner at the top. There is a nice rock crack just to the right of this climb.

Protection 

A few screws.

Toprope Protection 

There are 2 bolts just above this.
