DescriptionThis is one of the best in the Ouray area and is well under-appreciated! Beware during avalanche danger - I've been engulfed in the power cloud from this gully while standing on top of the route Skylight! It has excellent mixed climbing and some good steep ice on P1 which you can do in one rope stretching 70m pitch to the top of the first tier. Then ascend some low angle snow/ice rambling up to the last 70m pitch of WI4.
Rap the route off of bushes and/or V-threads.
This basically packs all the good climbing on Bird Brain Blvd. into one awesome 70m pitch. Enjoy.
