Hard start climbs over the rap and belay anchors. These anchors were placed to avoid down climbing the gully. We have been rapping a little to the left of the tree. I try to look over the edge when I toss the rope to avoid the prickly pear. After the hard start it gets a bit easier above. Good rock and fun moves.
This wall is known as the Bowling Alley as anything knocked loose at the top of the gully goes down it. Once at the start of the climbs this is not an issue. Climb the gully right of the Lorax (see Hyrax). At the top where it is choked with talus move right to sloping ledge with belay anchor.
