Description

Cauliflower Gully is a good way to reach the summit of Mt. Willard after climbing any of the routes on the lower south face (Cinema Gully through Gully 1).

Depending on conditions and where you start climbing, you may need to do it in two pitches.

To descend, top out and follow the well-marked Mt. Willard Trail (to the right/northeast) about 40 minutes (1.6 miles) back to the train depot at the Highland Center. You can also rappel but, depending on conditions, you may need an intermediate anchor.

Location

Cauliflower Gully is located very high at the far left of Mt. Willard's South Face. From the train tracks, you can access it by climbing any of the lower routes (Cinema Gully through Gully 1) and then hiking up about 100 yards and left 50-200 yards.

Protection

Ice screws. Note that the gully faces south so it can get baked out. Some rock gear might be nice if the ice is thin. Trees at top for belay anchor.
