“A consistently good, short route that's perfect to run laps on.”— Phil Lauffen
Either head up glacier knob to your right to get a few dozen more meters of vertical, or just go from here. Work your way down the gully, trending left. When you get to the first glade-bench area, hook left HARD. If you don't, you'll get cliffed out.
Skirt along the base of some cliffs (watch for weak points, aka, stay away from the cliffs) until you can continue down a boulder field (can be tricky with low snowpack) and then power through the trees until you hit the return ski trail.
