DescriptionThe biggest drainage on the North Face of the South Bluff. You won't need an ice axe or crampons, but they'll make it more enjoyable and help create the illusion that you're actually in a real couloir. There are some ice steps, but truthfully you'll have a harder time stepping over downed trees than negotiating the ice.
This gully is a beautiful part of the park and I highly recommend a visit - the "climbing" leaves a little to be desired, but the environment and solitude are everything anyone can ask for in this part of the world.
LocationThis route is the second major gully you will encounter on your right after the berm on your left subsides as you're walking down the tracks from the south shore parking lot.
Manley Creek Gulley is the eastern gulley marked in this map.
