Obvious southern most gully on Mt. Webster, a low angle ice climb that can be mostly snow in heavy winters. From the parking at the green box and strange wooden square (?) follow a usually beaten path across the Saco River and straight up the gully. A ten foot section of ice will be encountered early, most parties will eschew a belay here. 300 more feet of snow bring one to where the ice usually begins. For most parties the climb is 4 full rope lengths with belays possible from rock, ice, or trees on the far left.
Expect short sections of ice split by long sections of snow.
Rap the route from trees out left (emergency only, this is usually a crowded climb) or follow a bootpack straight back from unroping point to the usually beaten Webster Cliff Trail. Take a right and follow it back to your car. Trail meets road less than
