Technical Scramble-- Photo 1

You will climb this gully to its end.

This is the first and hardest part; the crux is getting around the large chockstone visible the the first picture below. The climbing itself is not that difficult even though it is Class 5 (no more than 5.4 at the most), but the really loose, easily breakable rock makes things more difficult and dangerous. Above the chockstone, the climbing gets a little easier but still stays in the Class 4-low 5 range.
