DescriptionThis is yet another long, unknown mystery gully in Eureka with lots of steep snow wallowing and easy ice, with three distinct pitches.
The first one is an obvious, short, sunny pillar (it was sun-rotted & detached, so we bypassed it via an interesting, loose mixed pitch to the right).
The second pitch climbs a buttery-blue short steep step to the upper gully.
Slog/solo up the long upper gully to the headwall pitch, a beautiful thin runnel that we climbed on the right side to top out.
This route has lots of snow-wallowing (extremely dangerous in bad snow conditions), wild position, very alpine feel. I have no idea what it's called, "HH Righthand" is just a guess.
