Description

Take Chair 4 to Chair 15 and then hike up Covered Wagon Peak.

From here you can go to either side of Covered Wagon Peak and follow the ridge in the southeast direction that leads to peak with a radio tower.

You can ski tour or sidestep to boot-pack.

That peak is Mellisa Coray Peak.

From there, follow the main ridge to the most prominent peak, Peak 9795.

This chute requires a bit route finding as you need to hike down a few rocks down to a flatter shelf with a few small trees and then head skiers right in the direction of California Chutes.

CAUTION – to the left is a major cliff with dire consequences.

Once you make your way down, you will end up in the bottom of California Chute.
