Looking up South Gulley from the Buttress trail.

Description 

The highest west facing wall in the South Gully. Easily viewed from the Squamish Buttress. Recognizable by the major prow like corner capped by a jutting roof, a popular launch point for base jumpers. The first ascent was in 1968, details and route description sketchy.

One of the cleanest, most aesthetic formations on the Chief.


Getting There 

Approach via the Apron to Kashmir Wall. From Kasmir walk ten minutes up the South Gulley. First pitch not obvious until your underneath it. This pitch deposits you on ledge underneath Teddy Bears Picnic and Gravity Bong.
