Description

Carson Peak Gully is a magnificent flow for the grade, with beautiful positioning and a very none committing feel. The route forms annually but is typically buried in snow due to its low angle nature. Watch for cold snaps with low precipitation to catch this puppy!

Location

Obvious gully on bottom right N side of CP, formed with a fat smear which you can see from several vantage points as you are approaching roadside ice or horse tail falls. After the initial 600+ feet of almost pure water ice you can walk down third class ledges, Skiers right of the flow to get back to the start of the climb. If you want to make the route quite a bit more exciting and involved there are three mixed variations a few hundred feet further from where the water ice ends. Each one checks in around M3/M4.

Protection

Screws, small trad rack with a few KB’s can help and is mandatory if you want to tackle any of the mixed headwall finish variations!

Is it RR or Pete’s Dream?!!
Doug Nidever told me it was called CPG?!! Oct 31, 2018
It’s listed in SP’s guidebook as Robs Ravine. I’ve seen it called RR elsewhere too. Pete’s Dream is the big bowl off the summit above - it was his dream to ski it. Oct 31, 2018
