Stick Gully is the broadest gully cutting into Bridge Mountain’s lower southeastern flank. This entire area is a popular winter destination as it is mostly south facing. There are several classic and/or potentially classic multi pitch climbs in the area: Birdland (5.7), Spectrum (5.11a) and Orange Clonus (5.10d). One of the more popular single pitch routes on this section of Bridge Mountain is Straight Shooter (5.9). Just to the right of Straight Shooter wall is a wide, deep and obvious gully/canyon named Stick Gully.
Stick Gully has five established routes as of 2011. Three solid single pitch crack routes can be found at the far end named Stickball (5.9), Stick Right (5.9) and Stick Left (5.10c). Across the chasm on the shaded wall (northeast facing) is a three pitch route: Nature is Fun (5.9+). Earlier in the gully, on the same wall as Nature, is a feature resembling the name of the four pitch route up its right side, the Elephant Penis (5.10a).
Head up as for the very popular 5.9 single pitch route; Straight Shooter. From the Pine Creek trail, turn right at a well cairned climbers trail to ascend the right ridge of the lower rock band below Straight Shooter and Brass Walls. Follow the ridge up and break off the trail towards the obvious broad gully up and right from atop the ridge. Enter the gully on the left side and follow an indistinct trail to almost the end of the canyon for the Stick routes and Nature is Fun route. The Elephant Penis is on your left side about half way in the box canyon we call Stick Gully.
