There is a few alternatives depending on the snow conditions. You have the luxury to be able to inspect from below, the one above is the most obvious one. The second line has a mandatory in less deep years. Be aware: You can quite literally not afford to fall in the top section.

There is further obvious lines on the east face. Steep as well. Chocolate chips to navigate two thirds down. Rarely gets tracks.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
