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.
There's a high thrill factor on this one. Access via the Center Gulley Ascent
or the Chute. This obvious line (when the snow pack is good) runs between Center Gulley South
and The Chute
. It runs over some large cliff bands and picks down through large boulders as it nears the ravine floor. Great caution is needed to avoid damage to your gear and your person.
