Altitude 705m a.s.l
A solid 40 minute hike uphill from the Snow Creek lot ends at the Pearly Gates, a crag with a couple dozen crack and slab routes from one to two pitches. The rock is an amazingly sticky fine-grained granite, unlike most other granite in the Icicle. The routes range from 5.8 to 5.12, and are generally super fun. Some routes are north facing, so this can be a good option when the rest of the canyon is too hot.
Park at the Snow Creek lot (FS pass required), cross the bridge and take a climbers trail to the right after the aquaduct. Requires crossing the creek via log bridges - may change seasonally (!).
