Description

A long, steep approach to a narrowish-gully high on the far northern end of Mt Webster slabs. Best seen from the RR Tracks below Cinema Gully on Mt Willard.

Find the break in the trees below the gully and then make a pilgrimage by hiking, wading, or wallowing up the steep snow slope (1-2hrs, depending) to the base of the gully.

Climb and rap, or descend left (see COMMENT, below).

Location

On the far left end of Mt Webster.

Protection

Normal ice gear

Nice route if the snow conditions on the approach aren't too grueling. It's just one fairly long pitch. No need to rappel; there is an easy descent gully just to climber's left. Feb 2, 2016
