The Huge Chute is one of the wider of the Wolverine chutes.

Asher Margolies
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Overview

The Huge Chute is also known as THC. It is one of the wider of the Wolverine chutes. The Granny Chute is a similarly pitched and even wider alternative. And The Granny Chute is less likely to have a huge, impassible cornice at the top.

Description

Follow the instructions to Patsey Marley from the Grizzly Gulch trailhead. From the summit of Patsey Marley, continue toward Mount Wolverine for approximately 500 feet. The first obvious saddle is the entrance to The Huge Chute.
