Description:

This route climbs the slightly dirty gully between the two sport routes on the 300 foot slab. The gully is a direct line between Clip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Lady and The Tramp. The line climbs independently through the first pitch, but I would suggest using the first belay station of Lady and The Tramp so you have a safe belay for bringing up your second. P1: climb up the low angle gully using whatever protection you can (its sparse at best). When you can traverse right to Lady and The Tramp belay. This pitch is all trad protected. P2: Step back left into the gully and climb up until you meet up with Lady and The Tramp when it breaks left. When you hit the bolts of Lady and The Tramp you have two options: 1) finish up The second half of P2 of Lady and The Tramp (recommended with trad and bolted protection) or 2) keep going straight up the dirty gully to thrash through the brush to belay from one of the many trees. Option two is all trad protected maybe a bolt to clip when crossing Lady and The Tramp. I climbed this in 2008 and I have never heard of anyone doing the route and saw no evidence of people climbing it before because there is still plenty of loose rock on it.Also I didnt see any evidence of it being climb on any climbing website. With that said if the FA has been done by someone else let me know and I will make the changes accordingly. Location: On the slabs of Jimmy Cliff located in the gully between Clip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Lady and The Tramp.
