Description:

Easy, stepped climb. There have been several accidents here from avalanches. Be smart. Rap anchors can be hard to find if there is a lot of fresh snow. They are out on the buttress to the right when you top out.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I liked this more than 2nd gully because it had more ice.
We only took one rope and it took a bunch of raps (8?) to get down. This was my second ice lead and I felt very comfortable the whole time.

I climbed it again twice in 2006/7 season. Both times at night (stupid work/skool schedule). The scenery with a full moon is amazing.
