Putting on the snowshoes in the dark.It was pretty dark when we started up the avy gully. Now imagine how dark it was in the trees before we got to the darn gully!!The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.Alpenglow on Murchison, Chephren, White Pyramid, Epaulette, Kaufmann Peaks and Sarbach. A nice view from the ascent gully.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.The ascent gully on Mount Wilson.We're in the left branch now, looking down at Eric ascending behind me.The gully gets steeper and steeper until you reach the col. If it hasn't slid recently I wouldn't be caught in here. Unless there's no snow of course!Almost at the col.This is what we came for!! The incredible Wilson ice field with almost the whole route visible.The scary drop over the col onto the Wilson Icefield. Thank goodness it's a north facing slope that never gets sun.Ben and Eric follow Steven and I down the steep slope from the col and across another steep slope to gain the icefields.Back up a nice arete on the ice field.Making our way up the ice field.There were some fairly steep rolls that we had to watch out for, especially on descent as they were south facing.Eric comes up a steep roll. We weren't roped at this point since technically we weren't on the glacier yet - this is more of a snowfield than an ice field I guess.
