Ascent Trip Report

Moderate bushwack toward gully system S of SW ridge; began traverse at 1340m through trees to reach gully system above waterfalls; about 300m up the large gully, an avalanche swept down within 1m of us (moderate-sized, but heavy spring snow); we reassessed route options and decided the best option was to turn back that day; pleasantly, I ended up with a tick bite as well :)
