GM on a bluebird day

Description 

Climb the first pitch to the base of the steep curtain and belay here. Usually a good spot a little to the left of the curtain but watch for hanging daggers. Bring up your second then rocks, paper, scissors for the lead...Don't worry, seconding is just as fun!

Location 

Walk the RR tracks past the Cinema Gully approach. About 50 yards further down the tracks is the snow gully leading directly to the base of the line.

Protection 

10 to 12 screws.....belay from trees up top
