|The Falcon Guide (pg 36) states that there is a 3rd class gully located to the right (north) of the A Circle Wall. I would hardly would call it a 3rd class gully it is more or less a very easy 5th class climb complete with loose rock and moss. Exercise caution when climbing up and whatever you do don't throw your rope over to the big ledge before stepping over, it might roll off... Don't ask me how I know that....|

If you want to toprope, you can climb the face/gully about 20' right of the 'class 3' gully. Get above the ledge (about 25 feet) and then either downclimb or rap off a small tree (there were slings and a locking carabiner as of 8/7/14).
Be warned this approach has a few low class 5 moves (5.1-3ish) and would not be recommended for beginners or those without sticky rubber. For most, wear your approach shoes or climbing shoes.
Once on the ledge, there are (rap) anchors about 5' to the climber's right of Apex Predator.
Setting a TR on Joe Mamba requires gear (small/mid size cams)
