Pretty immense place! Brief view of a golden eagle from about mid way up. A small ice pitch (very cruddy) and two chockstones to squeeze under.

Working. The lower part of the gully was soft, and very easy for grade, beyond chockstone was a bit icier.

deep sugary snow made for hard work. Nice ice on the side walls though. The ridge is sugary and melting too.
