Climbs the deep gully next to the pinnacle in 3 pitches. The first (crux) climbs 60 degree ice and is followed by a lower angle snow/ice pitch. The final pitch goes through two more ice bulges which are easier than the first pitch.

Beautiful day to cut out of work early. Not much snow in the gully or after topping out. Strong winds, up to 70mph, caused lots of little ice pellets to fall down the gully the entire time. It was fat.
