Tenison Woods Knoll to Watons Crags Map

Description

Although not quite marked on the map, the Watson's Crags area provides some intense and incredible skiing. From Tenison Woods Knoll, simply follow the ridge line on and out to the north, then it turns slightly westwards then you will inevitably be able to see the incredible view of the area beyond. Make sure you keep to the centre of the ridge line, as large cornices can form on the eastern sides and can break away beneath you. This is a really enjoyable skin with amazing views in all directions, just make sure you've got a camera handy.
