North Gateway Rock\'s Tourist Gully
The Tourist Gully on North Gateway Rock as seen from the top of Montezuma's Tower. The gully is so named because of the numerous tourists who have scrambled up it and had to be rescued when they couldn't climb back down. I've used it to access the highpoint of South Gatewaty Rock and it is little more than an easy scramble. The Red and White Twin Spires can also be seen in front of the gully. They both hold several moderate climbing routes. Garden of the Gods, Colorado. June 2009.

Voted 10/10

I always wondered (tossed and turned at night) speculating WHY they called it the Tourist Gully.

THANKS for the explanation! The dude who
created the "Tourist Gully" SP-page
apparently left a LOT to the imagination.

Why do they call it "Montezuma's Tower?"
Was Montezuma actually in Colorado?

That's not associated with "Montezuma's
Revenge, is it ???

Awesome photograph, Sarah !
