This is the east side of the Coffin gully. It is west-facing, and somewhat broken appearance. The rock did not seem to be all that good on the areas I climbed. Good afternoon sun in the winter, and a close proximity to the Coffin. If the Coffin is packed, like it was today, explore over here.
Park in the Little Cottonwood

gully and pick your line on this west-facing slabbish area. The routes start at the southern end and continue up to the culmination of the gully.
