4th Gully Map

Gullies 4-6 are not always open and sometimes require a sign out with patrol, observe all signage and gates before entering.


After entering the the gate, look for entrances along the cornices, this may require probing, cautious route finding and pole whacking may be required to safely enter. 4th Gully begins with a tight choke above a hanging snowfield. This is just over a ski length wide, but very short. The next few turns are on a steep, perfect snowfield. As you near it's end, look for entrances to the lower gully, these may be tight and rocky. Ski the lower chute down to Turkey Traverse.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
