Re: Amazing

This is the lower end of the standard south gully route on the summit pyramid. The gully has some steep snow usually until sometime in June or even July, with mostly 3rd but some 4th class rock. There are variations on the south face that are more interesting rock if that's what you're looking for. We approached via the Sulphide Glacier.

Re: Amazing

I should have included the link to one of my favorite photos of the south face of the summit pyramid - here it is. You may wish to peruse not only the Shuksan gallery, but the entire site of John Scurlock's photos of the North Cascades - they are outrageous! -Bob
