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.

I reached this point by climbing a couloir up the south side, and after a short downclimb here, skied this line. Indeed a fun place to play. Mar 26, 2008

Climbed 2/27/2016 with pretty good snow conditions. Downclimbed the south side eventually ending up at Sky Pond. Downclimbing was at least as steep as the climb up.

Saw two descent options. The more easterly (closer to Sharkstooth) looked thin, so we moved west and were able to stay on snow for the entire descent. Feb 28, 2016
