Snivelling Gully II, WI 3
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
1st Pitch- The guide book references that this section is often plagued by open water, During our climb however I found it to be in decent shape. I noticed it became somewhat shallow up the middle and thus moved the lead back to my right on better ice. There is a station off to the left that could be used if you want to bail mid-way up I suppose. Continue up to where the gully narrows and turns right. There on the wall to the left you will find a bomber station consisting of an older bolted chain and new (2006) bolted rap rings.
