2 out of 5 stars Best for rap only

This is a great way off the mountain. Good for getting down when other parties are climbing up.

1 out of 5 stars Have done many times, just adding for posterity

Not a very good climb, only great for getting down from the Monk or higher climbs. I used to take beginners on this; now I would *much* rather take newbies on either Sleazy Street or Rain of Terror, even if they are harder climbs. This one only has 20 feet of real climbing and is rather boring.

3 out of 5 stars LONGER EASY ROUTE

Rappel Gully is kin to Headwall Route in difficulty and obviously in type of rock but is a little longer with a short "crux" that utilizes a side wall so also a great first ascent for newbies.
