Grand Teton, Northeast Couloir Gully. In mid-July Charlie Fowler and I climbed a gully filled with water-ice which rises from the northeast couloir. The gully begins about 1000 feet above the bergschrund of the couloir. After six pitches it ends at a small notch in the east ridge, just east of the Molar Tooth. It is probably the hardest ice route in the Tetons, though there are other early-season possibilities on the north side of the east ridge.
