Description 

Many long moderate gullies up the west slope opposite Mt. Willey. The gullies, though moderate, are long, consistant, and offer some stunning views of the notch.

Getting There 

Park on rt 302 on the east side and follow foot paths or bushwack to your climb. You will cross Saco river so be careful in spring conditions, but in winter the river is easy to manage.

Shoestring Gully WI2  NH : *NH Ice and Alpine Climbing : Mt. Webster
The route starts as an easy snow gully over boulders. After approximately 1000 ft the gully narrows and gets steeper. [NOTE: The beauty of this climb is its alpine nature, really confined walls, especially the right wall. The easiest line over most of the ice is on the right side, usually then moving to the center. Directly up the center is usually 3- to 3. The climb's submitter indicated "Climb six pitches of water ice 2, steps split between easy snow gullies."
