Need to Know

In order to ascend this pitch, simply skin up this descent line.

Description

Find the gully below the obvious drainage and bushwhack to the bottom of the chute. The chute trends to the right as you climb and eventually attains a ridge. Some spots in the chute are narrow and tend to have low snow due to the low elevation.
