A more exciting route up to the summit of Grays and then back down the Lost Rat Couloir.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

Ice axes, crampons, and ski crampons are highly recommended.

This definitely makes an otherwise underwhelming summit much more exciting. The ski down is fun, too.
