Hello,

Planning to do this descent soon. Has anyone done it or has info about descending the couloir?


Cheers!

This is ascent though, but gives an idea of conditions...

The one in the photo, as far as I know, is not the "Barney Couloir" climbing route, but another steep gully feeding down into Barney gorge. The one described by Ryan Siacci in his trip report, may be tricky to abseil due a serious lack of sturdy shrubs at intervals, but the one in the photo looks more vegetated and could be a different story...

Yes thanks but I wasn't referring to the grade 17/19 (can't remember the grade right now) climb but the gully that descends from Leaning saddle down to Barney G. The climb is right on the opposite side, running from the Moonlight Slabs up to the saddle and it's pure rock. The one I'm discussing is vegetated/grassy and slabby.

Cheers!
