Description:

This is not truly an ice climb, though crampons and an ice axe are necessary. Head off of the road for this most obvious and direct gully. Try to stay on the hard packed snow, the soft snow may be unstable, and the rocky ridges are very rotten. The snow angle approaches up to 60 degrees in places. The gully ends in a saddle below a short summit ridge, take caution on the last 100 yards to the summit, the ridge can be very corniced. The true summit is ten feet away, three feet higher, and MUCH MORE EXPOSED! Crux is boulder move to true summit block.

Pretty basic snow gully, we took a side gully near the top which proved to be the Crux of the route when we hit a 70-75 degree headwall of ice that led to the summit ridge. Nice day, nice climb.
