The Big Gulp area runs from the large overhanging buttress that gives it the name to the north/west end of the climbed section of the cliff, at Ein Kleines Nacht Klettern. There is an easy scramble to the top of the cliff about 50m farther north/west than Ein Kleines Nacht Klettern.
Several of the old trad climbs here have been retro-bolted (with FA's permission) as sport climbs, making this a newly popular sport location with a number of moderate sport climbs.
Access issues inherited from Mount Nemo
There is a top-roping ban in effect meaning that top-ropes may only be setup by a climber who has led the climb from the ground up. DO NOT SLING CEDARS and pad all other trees when building anchors.
From the parking lot, hike to the lookout and take the path to the left to continue hiking northwards along the top of the cliff. Eventually, you will begin to descend into an area with logs lining the path where you can double back to an easy scramble, the 'Easy Way Down'. This drops you about 50m north/west of 'Ein Kleines Nacht Klettern'.
Most/all climbs have anchors to lower from.
Look for an obvious dirty red streak down from the top of the cliff -- climb up to and through this streak.

Climb the right-facing crack and corner system on the right side of the overhangs.
