Sand Gulch is yet another top-notch Shelf crag, known particularly for its outstanding collection of moderates. The cliffs here are taller and more monolithic than most, offering long, continuous routes of impressive quality. Routes range in difficulty from ~5.8 to 5.12b. The various cliffs that comprise the Gulch face in various directions such that its possible to chase sun or shade at any time of day, as conditions dictate.
