Description

Angle Gully is a rocky billy goat line that runs through the main rock section in the top center of Headwall. Looking down the rock, there are a couple of platforms of snow running right to left underneath the main rock section. There are multiple exits skier's right to the main Headwall, depending on the amount of snow. The middle of Angle Gully contains a choke move onto the second platform and your exit move. To access Angle Gully, enter Headwall from the main entrance and carefully traverse to the right until you get onto the main cliff band. There, you will find a steep apron, which is the start of the Angle Gully. Careful on your exit, as the runout is typically bumped out.
