Dog Face Gully is a pass onto Narrow Neck near Katoomba. The pass starts just west of the Landslide (Dogface) - and follows up a steep gully through the lower cliffline. Then a ledge to the east is followed until a short technical corner is reached which provides a route through the upper cliffline. Then it is easy going to the Narrow Neck Road.

Party - Bob, Dave

We started walking down the Furber Steps at 9:30 am and reached the top of the pass around 11 am, so we then headed out to explore some nearby lookouts.
