Description:

The grubby deep gulley right of Hotlegs. Good climbing, but you may have to dig pretty deep to get in pro (some already have, so there are cleanish spots now).

3 out of 5 stars GOOD ANCHORS

This puppy is still a good climb even though a bit worn. Convenient anchors bolts for top roping which cover about 4 climbs

3 out of 5 stars Gargantua

Not what I expected, A bit more sustained than I thought it may be (lost some sweat !), but a fun chimney climb if you do not mind the dirt near the top, clean
