Damnation Gully

    Pitch 1: Climb multiple pitches of snow and moderate ice to the Alpine Garden.

Gear: standard ice rack and some rock gear
Descent: same as Pinnacle Gully
History:  January 31,1943 - William L. Putnam, Andrew J. Kaufman did the first complete ascent, but Robert Underhill and Lincoln O'Brien came close in 1929.
