Tour Ronde North Face
For anyone who has climbed Mount Helen Tower 1 Gully:

What is the climbing like from the top of the saddle where the gully ends to the top of Mount Helen?

I've tried to find any information on that section and have failed to find anything.

I'm thinking of climbing this in September, but an trying to figure out if I want to go all the way to the summit of Helen, or descend from the top of the ice climbing.

Any information would be appreciated.

It's been decades, but I remember it as being great fun. Did not bring rock shoes, climbed in mountain boots. About 5.8. One belay atop a tower has no anchors & is very exposed. Go for it! Larry
