Entering "The Hot Gates" requires riding a chute about 80 feet long. There are rocks, tight roll-ins, a drop and rock gardens, finally ending on the myth.

Access Info

About 3/4 of the way down Penny Lane, look to your right and you will see it, just north of a power pole. Looks like someone made it to bypass the climbing part of Penny Lane.
