Description

Stinkbug often isn’t in condition and is generally avoided by the crowds seeking descents like Airplane Gully.

Stinkbug looks promising from the top, offering fun turns down a hanging snowfield.

As soon as the fun starts, the gully is choked out by rocks.

Some years this forms up enough that a line may be passable, but in most years a rappel or upward bail is necessary to escape Stinkbug.

Below the crux, pick your way through The boulder field and join Mother In Law.

This line is exposed to some heinous fall potential, do not ski unless you are 100% comfortable in this terrain.
