Description Suggest change

This route climbs up a feature on the left side of the obvious snow gully. The gully it's self offers early season ice scrambling for many hundreds of feet after a few cold snaps and before snow buries most of the low angle ice. FA conditions reviled 150' of WI2 with the top portion being split by a bulge of rock. Rappel off v threads. The name derives from a historical cabin in Talkeetna. (Ref Blue Ice Black Gold, Andy Embick)
