Need to Know

This northeasterly aspect of Mt Glory is generally referred to as Chicken Scratch. It is characterized by steep trees, cliff bands and several quick chutes. It can be highly prone to avalanche activity, so use wise judgement before dropping in. It is a fun zone, but shots are fairly short relative to what you get on other aspects. Though worthy in the right conditions, it can be difficult to find a line with flow.

Description

From Mt Glory summit, descend above Glory Bowl on Northeast Ridge. After only about 80 meters, look for a few small, dead pine trees on the ridge. Below to the northeast is the start of Chicken Scratch. Cautiously drop into steep trees that roll over into even steeper terrain after a few hundred feet. The first Chicken Scratch chute is the longest with several shorter chutes accessible by dropping a bit further down the ridge. Be cautious of cliff bands beneath, should you miss the entrance to these chutes.
