Pramecou North Face Map

This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be severe. It's very remote, it features medium exposure (e2) and is typically done between January and April. From a low point of 2.8 km to the maximum altitude of 3.1 km, the route covers 1.5 km, 182 vertical metres of ascent and 279 vertical metres of descent. It's graded 4.2 and Labande grade 4. You'll need rope, skins, crampons and glacier kit to complete it safely.


This is an imposing steep line and needs to be in good condition due to its steepness and the fact that it has a few rocks on the slope.



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