This is a great face that has many options. The easiest is starting from the top and riding to the skiers left. You will come a to plateau that trends into a wide chute on the left, which joins up with Thumbs Up Exit, then a straight shot into the bowl. If you want to go big, pick any of the lines you have appetite for. Beware the skiers far right line can be thin snow pack with hidden rocks. Beware of triggering slides onto Greely Bowl. It is a high consequence line getting there and riding it- be warned, it is a long, technical, and exposed access route. Also be certain of the Mackenzie SE face stability as you will have to traverse and boot pack the ridge. The approach is fairly exposed and falls could be fatal.
