Access Issue: Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details

Description

Thin start leads to a ramp which trends up left with a cleft of rock above and short wall to the right.

Past the neck down, as the climb develops and becomes more straight up (low angle) the ice gets more substantial.

Finish in a bowl then a bit more ice as the flow goes into the trees.

Rappel with hopefully a long set of ropes from trees and v-thread anchors.

Good early season romp especially if there's substantial ice with no snow.  

Once the snow fills in, the ice goes bye bye as it gets buried in even a low snow pack.

Location

The furthest left of the three long and usually prominent early season Z gullies.

Left of the Y coulior.

Bottom of the Hogum Fork canyon exit.

Approach from the standard parking lot for the Y couloir.  Cross the creek and head up the kinda bushy and talus slopes below the center Z gully.  Cut over to the left to the route.

Protection

Standard ice screws. Toss in a couple shorties for the lower ice. Bring some tat for rap anchors.
