Description

Stay right about 20 yards after you drop into Great Scott, there is a small traverse in the trees and around some rocks, that will drop you into the Hanging Bowl. Here you have 2 options - take the double cliff fall line or take the smaller cliff out right. The size of the cliffs greatly depends on the amount of snow and of time of year. The double cliff drop is typically about a 3 footer to a 10 foot drop, but spits you out fast into the bowl below. If you keep taking the traverse out right you will simply have to pick your feet up over some rocks to exit. Either way you go you will find great snow.
