Description

The first pitch is around 150 feet of snow (around 45º), then you can build the anchor in the rock
at your right, for the second pitch you have to climb a small mixed chimeney (10 to 25 feet depending on the amount of snow) after that you will find some steep snow (55º) up to the exit of the gully where you can make the anchor in some big boulders. After this you will reach the crest to the summit where you will find some exposed but easy mixed parts (M2) to reach the summit.

Location

you will see the gully from the parking is the left gully against a big wall in the east face of the mountain

Protection

there is only a couple of old spits in the second pitch only visible with few snow.
Carry some rock gear and a snow picket could be useful
