John, my buddy and I attempted it last winter. We went up Mill Creek, but my knees were screwed up, so we did not make it. Spent the night near the NF of Galena in a light "storm", nice light snowfall.

I would love to climb that route. The chutes get pretty steep near the top. Forecasting the temps will be real important to avoid getting a rock to the brain bucket.

I believe the base of the canyon is on Indian Reservation land, no?

Parts are. Was thinking of either Banning canyon to Gunsight Pass, then over to East fork and up past Silverwood falls. Just don't know anyone who has been through there. Or making the longer trek from Whitewater.

Might be the best "economy of force" to just hoof it up to the Tarn, then drop in and boogie. That would cover the climbing part, though one wouldn't do the entire canyon in that way.

Looking forward to the trip report on this one.  That big couloir is clearly visible from San Jacinto.  I always wonder about it.
