This is the right diagonally running ice gully on the upper East Face of Mt. Willard. The upper section is reached by climbing most routes on the South Face and then walking right until below Hitchcock. You can also do the lower portion of Hitchcock Gully which is often mixed. The upper gully is 1 pitch of great moderate ice. Descend by rappelling route or bushwacking up and left to the Mt. Willard trail.
