Description:

An easy ice gully climb that reaches the top of the cliff, with a few vertical sections on the right side.

The route can be split up in two pitches that matches the rappelling points.
Most of the route could be considered WI2-3 thanks to a steep vertical ending at about WI3.

Variations
*After the first section, when you reach the trees, 5m on the right of the gully are a couple vertical pillars at about WI3+.
*At the last vertical wall, you can bypass it by following a ledge/runnel on your right, (don't forget your second!)

Descent Options:

Rap off the trees from the top (please use slings and rap rings if it hasn't been equipped yet.) Single ropes will need to rappel the climb in two sections since the route is 45m long.
