I never would have though there was a line through those rocks on that face! Thanks for the beta as well, I have been wanting to ski the gully between Drift and Fletcher, but it looks kinda thin so I guess I will pass this year...

I skied it last year in early June, we climbed up the ridge on lookers right of the face. I dont think its 50+ degrees, more like a max of about 48-49 where it rolls.

My partner and I skied the N face of Drift last Saturday. The upper face is in the low 40s and the entrances to the gullies that split the cliff band briefly touch the 50s. By and large, the skiing is all very manageable and well within the grasp of the average expert. But if people want to spread the rumor that this line is gnarlier than it is, I‘m all for it - I can tell everyone what an extreme skier I am!
