“A steep and gnarly avalanche gully.”— J. Bella
Several drainages flow together near the middle, then rock outcrops near the bottom create a channel that can be a challenge to navigate on a thin snow year. With a deep snowpack, there are ways to ride through with a series of small drops, when the snowpack is thin the bottom of this line melts out and a steep class 3 downclimb is necessary to exit the line. It's also possible to end up on top of some large rocks if you leave the gully to either side.
It is recommended to explore this area during the summer or hike up from the bottom at times of low avalanche hazard before attempting to ride this particular line so you can become familiar with the terrain.
