Description 

The southernmost crag at area 44 sits atop a large pile of talus and dirt. Bounded by a prominent belay platform on the north (left) side and a dirty gully with fixed lines and ladders on the right. Those who make the unpleasant approach will be rewarded by excellent climbing on highly featured (if occasionally friable) rock. Shady belays, afternoon sun higher up on the walls, and a fantastic view of the tantalus range are also highlights.

Getting There 

If approaching from the standard crag trail (passing the corner) follow the blue markers, staying low when possible. Scramble up a large talus field and further up the dirty slope to the end of the line. It may also be possible to approach from the top of the crag, down the fixed ladders.

The Climb Warp 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  North America : Canada : ... : Upper Gully
A nice long route up a large buttress. Goes through twelve bolts, staying pretty vertical until around the seventh bolt.Depending on skill level there are two cruxes, the first being right after the seventh bolt, and the second being higher up on some pumpy crimp moves for the last couple bolts. The whole route is at a gentle overhang as well, so it can get pumpy, but it is punctuated with a few good rest jugs/horns along the way.Make sure to stay left of the bolts as you get higher up.
