Teewinot Trip Report (#7286)

With Margaret Pratt, up and down the southwest snow gully. Took a potentially fatal fall on the late evening descent in the snow gully, which had turned icy. Fortunately I was roped (supposedly for the benefit of my less experienced companion). Since there was a 150' runout, however, I was going to hit the rocks very, very hard. Saved literally a few feet from disaster when the rope looped over a snow bollard.
