Need to Know

This is extreme terrain with extreme weather. You MUST bring warm clothes, food, and water. This is a steep hike to the top and requires plenty of time. Avalanches are a threat in this area.

Description

Access via the Left Gully Ascent. This line is through the obvious chute on the left side of the ravine, passing between a large rock section on the skiers right and a smaller rock section on the skiers left. This route reaches 40 to 50+ degrees at it steepest point. Depending on the season, it may be best to climb the route prior to skiing it so you know where rocks are sticking up and where other hazards exist.
