Same as previous.

Trail approach is dry or consolidated (make sure to stay high over the Bell Cord fan). Snow bridge ~100 ft upstream for the crossing. Axe/pons recommended for gullies up to Len Shoe. basin. The grassy ledge entrance to the White Gully is dry. Crampons/axe needed for couloir. Saw a few rocks fall - evidence suggests goat suspects.

We ascended the left branch to the saddle and descended the right branch. The terrain above the right branch is far easier and cleaned out.
