BETA PHOTO: Approach Gully.


Before reaching the main routes, the gully is frozen and occasionally steep enough to be of climbing interest. The steep bits are only about 15 feet long, so think of it more as ice bouldering. Fun, but nothing special.


Screws, but the steep steps are short so it is best to solo.
