Overview

Wilderness area, no mechanized equipment, drones etc.
Features: -none-

Need to Know

Class 3 avalanche terrain and poor cell phone service make caution necessary here.

Description

This is the middle and most prominent 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.
