Description

Gobbler's can be reached a number of ways from the BCC side or the Mill Creek side. This approach begins at the Butler Fork trailhead in BCC.

The start of the trail looks like a classic terrain trap to me with steep cliffs bearing down on you from both sides, ready to bury you deeply. Eventually, things open up and you reach a fork, the left of which takes you into Mill A basin up over the Butler saddle, connected to which is Circle Awl Peak--a peak you should consider visiting on your exit. The terrain leading to said saddle is steep and prime for a slide, but once in Mill A basin, things mellow, and you get some amazing views of Mt. Raymond and Gobbler's Knob.

Skinning to Baker's Pass, which divides these two mountains, is also not without some avalanche risk. Once at the pass, head right to go to Gobbler's Knob. Watch out for cornices.

Out the bottom of the Circle All trees back onto the skin track, after navigating through thick brush from the peak.

Skiing down the north face of Gobblers.  Don't watch anything past the first run.  The video is super boring after that.
