La Bonida - Left Map

La Bonida is one of the most beautiful and alluring peaks in the Grand Tourmalet. Its two parallel east facing couloirs call to any adventurer who sees them. The climber's Left Couloir is easy to access by gaining the Col and moving right, up along the ridge to the top. It can also be quickly booted up from the bottom. They take about the same amount of time. See photos and info at www.couloirquest.com. The difficulty rating for this route uses the posted FATMAP criteria.



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