The Petzl Ergo is Petzl's answer to hard, steep mixed terrain. A huge clearance shaft allows for easy hooking on overhanging terrain and the shaft and handle build prevents the Petzl Ergo from skating off those tiny holds. Comes equipped with a 4 mm thick DRY pick that can handle the abuse of torques and stein pulls.
The Central Gully is a very open gladed run, with amazing turns on a 30ish degree slope. Very lap-able and with great views, plus this is what you look at the entire time you're skinning from the saddle.
