Description [Suggest Change]
On the west side of Sharkstooth as seen from The Gash lies a short but steep winter snow climb. It's neither a distinctive feature nor a destination, but it's a fun little jaunt in a magnificant location, giving the climber amazing views of both the Andrews Creek drainage and the Sky Pond Cirque.
Location [Suggest Change]
Head up toward Andrews Glacier and turn left into the Gash toward Sharkstooth. I climbed the right-hand gully immediately next to the spire, but there are a couple variations to the right (west). I call it a gully rather than a couloir since it's not as distinct as a typical couloir.
Protection [Suggest Change]
It's a good solo, but it can be protected with either pickets or a light rock rack.
