More information:
I'll be living in Gunnison, CO until at least after I graduate from Western, if not longer. I have made it my mission from now to then, as a beginner sport leader, to add easy routes in the Gunnison area that are bolted or have easy toprope access. In my quest to become a decent rock climber, it seems so difficult to find good information about the easy (5.7 or less) routes. Now that I have the Gunnison Rock guidebook... I plan on changing that.

Valley Girl 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
Looking down Valley Girl.  The gap in the trees is where the climb starts.  Slab of No Return from just past the Pinnacle Gully climbs. This is what you should see on your approach.  Slab of No Return while approaching from the Pinnacle Gully.  The bolts are a little hard to see at first, but the climb goes straight up the middle of this photo.
