  • Description 

    This is the steep east-facing wall at the top of the Right Gully. It is above a huge chockstone in the gully.


    A. Perspective, 10, 1p, gear.
    B. Extreme, 11, 1p, gear.
    C. Erki Nool, 11+, 1p, 90', bolts.
    D. Conan, 11+, 1p, 70', gear.
    E. Devil's Rain, 10, 1p, gear.

    Getting There 

    Head up the gully past Jolt Cola and Vasodilator. Crawl through the giant chockstone at the top of a gully to a ledge.

    An alternative approach is to climb Decade Dance or Aging Time, walk right on the top out ledge to its end, then rappel to beginning of Conan and Erki Nool.

    Possibly the most consistently steep trad climb in Boulder. As steep as Death and Transfiguration, without the stem rests. As steep as Comic Crack, but not a one move wonder. Not as steep as the last pitch on Vertigo, but way longer. As much value as Arms Bazaar, but steeper yet. Very aesthetic, great rock quality.Head up the gully past Jolt Cola, past Vasodilator.

    This is a great place to while away half a day doing pitches in the 11+ range: Conan, Extreme and Erki Nool are all excellent and of comparable difficulty.
