The top of Escape Hatch can be hard to find even in good weather. It is the next gully to the south after South Gully and it's easy to mix them up looking from the top. So yes, AlexeyD is right, it's a very good idea to have a few waypoints. GPS will work perfectly there - the top is wide open. Good news is that if you find it you can't get lost - just go down and you will intersect the main trail (Huntington Ravine trail) even though it maybe a bit of a bushwack in a low snow year. I've descended Escape Hatch probably half a dozen times but never had a chance to enter a few waypoints. Here is the best I can do (see link below, click on markers to get the coordinates of the waypoints. AlexeyD and me descended it together a few times so he should take a look and comment.

I think bdynkin's map coordinates are for the top of South Gully. Not sure -- I think the top of Escape is a little farther south than that, but it's hard to tell.
I am heading up to Huntington next week. If I get to Escape and can grab the coordinates of the cairn marking the gully top, I'll post them (with a picture of the cairn).
