Description

South Gully is like a longer, steeper, less crowded version of Lobster Claw.

While still a serious line, it is less exposed than Central and Diagonal, making it a good first gully if you’re new to the Huntington Ravine lines.

As with most gullies, the best approach is to climb from below.

South Gully opens with a few steep and open turns.

Sometimes the line is all snow, however there can be a small ice bulge in the fall line.

If this is the case, you can easily skirt it to skiers left.

The bottom of the gully snakes hard skiers right and exits into bushes.

This makes for a nasty fall hazard and terrain trap.

Find your way through the bushes and back to the floor of the ravine.
