    Default anybody know the name of this trail

    and/or if it is doable, technical etc, etc?






    it is in Kings Ravine, on the west side ( i.e. right side if you are walking in towards Adams) and from the maps there is a trail along that ridge (actually an RMC shelter up there) and looks like it might be a fun little gully / snow climb.... Any info would be appreciated ( and sorry the pics are not so good as it was a little socked in that day)




    BTW I took these pics from this junction when I was heading in on the Kings Ravine trail

    just before I turned left to head up the Chem De trail up towards the airline

    Default My guess

    From what you describe I would guess you're talking about the Great Gully Trail. I've not done it, but have a much more experienced friend who was caught up there in the rain and didn't like it one bit!

    I'm pretty sure that at this time of year it would be a technical climb, similar to Tucks headwall.
