A gentle skin to steeper options.

Description

Skin a couple miles up the Mayflower Gulch Trail, then assess climbing options for Fletcher. The easiest ascent is on the right, harder options on the left. This GPS track takes a medium option, 40-50 degrees at the steepest, which I then skied down.

Ice axe and crampons needed.
