Not often skied, this line is for experts only


Analysing terrain data



The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

High Exposure (E3)In case of a fall, death is highly likely.


This line requires some effort on your way up, but it will give you a great taste of Monte Rosa higher range.

It is a steep couloir that starts from a rocky ridge, it descend down into a flat slope that ends on a very big cliff.

Ski on the right to avoid it and enter the Balma.

The line itself is quite easy but you need a good knowledge of high mountains and steep skiing.

on your way up you'll be on a glacier and crevasses could be open.

Good snow conditions are necessary for this run
