This is a short and steep line down an avalanche gully.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Wilderness area, no mechanized equipment, drones etc.

Description

This is a fun line in a series of steep avalanche-prone gullies in the south-facing bowl at the head of Long Canyon. Strong winds deposit snow at the top of this ridge, and the gullies below act like a sluice and catch snow that forms vertical drifts in the terrain features.
