Crags Map

Crags is a very short and very narrow gully that sits above Shooter. It has one steep section through a rocky outcrop which can be loaded with snow on a good day. There are also a lot of rocks to jump off which vary in size. You get some seriously good turns in here after a windy day due to snow being deposited in the gully but every day it looks slightly different and new features appear. This line is a strong favourite with the locals.

Description

After Crags I recommend heading straight into Shooter.
