Route Description


This route climbs the spectacular south-east facing gully.

This is best climbed when there is still snow on the ground, but is possible without the snow.

From the trailhead head towards point 8881 and at about 8600 feet begin heading north.

You will pass through the stadium of the gods here. A really neat terraced stepped area that has multiple ledges.

There is some route finding once you get above 10,000 feet. I find the rock to the left to be a little more solid.

Once you get on the summit ridge it is a easy, but exposed walk to the summit

Essential Gear


Don't step foot into the super gully without a helmet. It is like a bowling alley.

If you opt for a early season climb start early and bring your axe and crampons.

Rope is not needed
