Quicker Way to White Pinnacle Gully
This is a quicker and more efficient way to White Pinnacle Gully. Follow First Creek Trail passing the turnoff for First Creek Waterfall. Continue on the trail as it turns into a path and spiderwebs. Stay near the wash, but do not cross it.
Soon the path ducks under the branches of a large tree: Landmark 1
Shortly you will see a ~3 foot high tree stump to the left of the trail: Landmark 2
Finally, you will see the reddish boulder in the photo below: Landmark 3
Cross the wash here. See the photo below.
You will ascend a very small hill after crossing the wash. Head NW about 50 yards where you will pick up a faint path. Follow this path the best you can. Although there are numerous paths, the direction of travel is now obvious: head for the slope that lies below White Pinnacle Gully
