Description 

This is the northern-most climbing area at Mt. Nemo.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, take the trail to the cliff. Turn left. Follow the white blaze trail north. You will come to a slab and boulder that has a chain as a hand rail. Go down this following the snaking trail slightly down hill. To your right, you will see a worn descent path. This is the Easy Ways Down descent, 2nd/3rd class, depending on variation. Go down the descent and turn right. The Big Gulp Area is the first climbing area you will come to.
