South Face, Central Gully

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
WI3- M4 Short walk to the head of the Glacier Burn valley where a fairly obvious line goes up the South Face of Pt 2016. Climbed over two years ago so hazy on the details...but this fine ice & mixed day trip is likely worthy of stars. Start up WI3- ice; a direct start (~WI4) also looks possible. The middle part involves your choice of climbing an ice smear or campussing tussock... A right-to-left ramp then takes you from the upper part of the climb to near the summit. From the top it's a cruisey walk east towards the saddle near Pt 1653 and an easy couloir back to the Glacier Burn.
