Need to Know

This section of the wall is not as frequented and is more subject to avalanches after other lines have slid. Overhanging ice is also a risk in the area.

Description

Lobster Claw and the variations are the farthest right gulley in the ravine. Start right of lunch rocks and hike up the path you intend to ski. Note obstacles. There are a number of variations in this area. Have fun!
