Description

Easy snow climbing through the trees and up through loose rock depending on amount of snow to the start of the steeper snow. First pitch goes from here to the left up the main gully to rap anchors on the right. 2nd pitch is steeper snow on to some easy grade I/II- ice. Exit gully right to rap anchors. Typically a descent route for more technical climbs in the area.

Location

Straight up the west side from the stone hut at the top of the notch, this is the biggest gully in the area.

Protection

There are 2 sets of fixed rappel anchors, one at the top, another a full 60m rappel below. Good ice near the top of the gully.
