Typical late summer conditions in the SE Gully. We intentionally climbed this route during an August dry-spell to reduce the natural rockfall hazard. In my opinion, the hazard from natural rockfall can be reduced, but never eliminated. Human triggered rockfall will be a factor, hence one person climbing in this photo, while the other person stays in a safe zone. Photo by Brendan Lee.
