DescriptionThis is the best moderate, easy access gully climb near Chimney Pond. Starts with ~ 200 m of easy snow scrambling or wallowing to the base of a nice ice flow. This is the left-hand of two prominent gullies running up to Pamola Peak.
P1 - 40-50m, fun WI3. Belay as up on the left side.
P2 - 40m, WI3/+. Belay up in cave on left side
Scramble to the top of Pamola peak, descend via Dudley trail to the left. Alternative, rap down the route; we did this to avoid the long scrambly descent.
LocationRecognizable by the large rock avalanche cone at the base.
Either 1. Follow the blue-blazed Dudley trail to the base of the cliffs and then walk until you get to the start or
2. Cross the pond, following the left-most stream bed for a while until you see the avalanche cone that marks the start of the route, then head left.
