This is normally used only as a descent route back into the ravine, it is located left (south) of South Gully. It is the lowest-angle "gully", although the funnel-shaped top can be a concern in avalanche conditions, just like South Gully.


Ice axe belay at the top section may be prudent if descending with novices,(... or under icy conditions that might preclude an ice-axe arrest! )
