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
