Drift Peak North Face

* Sponsored Ads by Google

This is a huge steep N-NE face that exits through a choice of gullies. The skier’s right exit contains cliffs so you may want to take the skier’s left exit. Be careful on the approach as you come up the ridge above the cornice. You don’t want to break that off. There may also be a cornice at the drop-in point. This is definitely not a winter line. Save it for a safe, solid snowpack. You can get a good look at your line from down below in Mayflower Gulch.
