Didn't make it up to broken hand pass, too much snow for us. Others did make it up the standard way (left in the gully) and it seems that somebody else made it up on the very right hand side, almost into another gully on the right.

The first shot is from the lakes, looking up at the pass.

The second shot is looking in the main gully, at the large roundish chokestone that the standard way seems to go left, and there are two relatively large step ups. The second one stumped us.

The third shot is to the right of the rib that defines the right side of the main gully. It appeared that someone had successfully climbed this as well.
