About Butcher's Branch:

To access Butcher's Branch take the trailhead out of the back of the main parking lot and continue to descend switchbacks until you cross the small stream and encounter prominent cliffline. A very popular collection of sport climbs, including one of the most well known and classic moderates in the Gorge (Flight of the Gumby). Often crowded, but most of the routes are worth the wait. A great deal of 5.11 climbing.
