Don't want to be on Rusty anymore? Take Gopher as a distraction. A technical climb in bother directions.
Mind your chain ring.
Trail can be exited half way at the Rusty/Eagle/Boneyard area if desired. Cattle trails leading to each and the trailheads are visible.
Coming from Sidewinder/Rusty parking : At the big rock rolldown off Sidewinder onto Rusty, there is a large log down. Through that is Gopher.
Climbing Rusty from the South you may happen to see the Gopher right hand (east) turn that punches you up onto a rock ledge.
