Trip: Snoqualmie Mountain - New York Gully

Trip Date: 03/16/2018

Trip Report:


Jacob and I scratched our way up New York Gully yesterday. With visions of grandeur, i carried a full aid rack and bivy gear up there to try the upper head wall. With no prior knowledge of the rock type, this seemed totally reasonable. In reality, it was not! No wonder there's a beautiful unclimbed wall less than two miles from a 12 month parking lot. 



Anyway, the route is one of my favorites I've done in the range. We even placed an ice screw! 

Gear Notes:
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much. A run of cams, a few pins and a screw would have been plenty.

Approach Notes:
Armpit deep

Character building with all that weight, I'm sure.  Looks like a great adventure nonetheless!

Well luckily we left the snowshoes in the car, so we didn't have to carry the extra weight while we wallowed, chest-deep, for hours on end.

We went up there yesterday (3/18). A few inches of snow had fallen the night before, leaving us with some powder plastered onto everything. There was lots of scratching around to find it, but the ice is still there, albeit a little on the thin side. 








I would strongly recommend either skis or snowshoes. But the approach and descent were a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge pain without any floatation.
