Bolting Note: The belay and protection bolts are probably still the original 1/4" aluminum nail-drives.

-The Creek Pasture climber's camp is marked with a red box.
-The 1.8 mile dirt road into Corral Pocket is marked with tiny red dots (zoom for clarity).
-Look for the unlocked gate from the highway.
-Steep hike marked in pencil (1,000ft gain).
-Probably the shortest approach for all routes on North Six-shooter.
