Tim leading the unnamed gully in great conditions....


This is the pitch of ice way up in the left branch of the big Y Couloir in Officer's Gulch. It's a beautiful little bit of easy ice. Pick a low avalanche risk day.

Walk west from the parking area about a mile on a footpath into the big basin. Below Three Tiers find a switchback east and up. Follow this until you are in the drainage below Round the Corner, unnamed curtain, and unnamed gully. Hike up the drainage, hopefully on a stamped-down path. At the Y perhaps a 1000 feet up, go left. Find yourself below this pretty bit of blue.

This is probably WI 2-3+ for a good pitch. Sometimes upper pitches apparently fill in. Enjoy.


Ice screws.


Probably an hour. Expect 1000' of gain.
