This is a great alpine, wilderness route. Climb up the gully on mixed ice and rock over the many bulges and corners.


On the south side of Carrigan Notch trail (right) you will see the gully. At the top you can go to the summit and sign in or head south back down the ridge to the trail (about 1 mile).


Standard short ice screws, for winter. Not much gear for a non winter accent as it is all loose.
