Essentially a lieback with some extra holds thrown in, Mossy Gully provides easy cranking up a clean looking corner until it widens into a dirty v-slot. "Clean" meaning the line the crack cuts, not necessarily the grunge covered bottom of the climb, or the muddy base you may encounter.


Several climbs left of Potato Chip in the dihedral


Trees, webbing. I recommend slinging it from the side to serve as a dual anchor for Black Buttress and Mossy Gully since a) Mossy Gully protects well with that anchor anyway, and b) you'll avoid the hellacious, Salvador Dali-esque rope grooving that happens lower down on Mossy Gully due to its lower angle.

This would be a fantastic route if only it kept going. Unfortunately, the dihedral/crack widens out to a 4th class gully about halfway up.
