A friend and myself are looking into the NE Ridge of Gannett in mid-late August. I gather from trip reports & topo investigation that the typical approach for this route is to depart from the Glacier Trail up Gannett Creek and onto Gannett Glacier. However, I have seen an approach up the Gooseneck listed as a possibility. As we've talked about making a run on the triple traverse off the Dinwoody if weather & time cooperate, this would be preferable, but I've seen very little information regarding this terrain that didn't come from a satellite.
My gut tells me we'd be in for several hundred feet of steep snow & ice, and likely some interesting crevasse navigation. Can anyone shed some light on the regions circled below?
Edit: After more digging, I found the information I was looking for on SummitPost's route description for the N. Face. Looks like moderately sloped snow in August, if anyone else reading this is wondering!
