Kindergarten Gully is about as straight forward as routes come, find the gully and climb it! The pitch of the route is around 40 degrees and steepens slightly at the very top.


A super obvious and beautiful arete separates two couloirs. The couloir to the left is Kindergarten Gully.

In the winter and spring, this is a fantastic backcountry ski descent. In the summer or fall, depending on route conditions, either downclimb or take the sandy slopes to the south of the couloir contouring east and eventually north-east around the peak and back to your car.


Bring a normal rack of ice screws (or a couple pickets in early season).
