Description:

The route scoots straight up the gully, which is on the right side of the raveine headwall. The route basically follows a summertime hiking trail called the "great gully trail", but without the switchbacks. Slope ranges from 30 to 60 degrees, with a short cascading waterfall ice section near the bottom, and 30-45 degree snow slope above. A classic grade 3 and grade 4 alpine route. Due to zero direct sunlight during the winter, and due to the north-facing slope (causing the prevailing wind to blow up-hill), conditions are generally good. However, evidence of avalanche activity exists, so always read the conditions before embarking on the climb.

Descent Options:

Airline Trail.
