This is the fifth couloir that can be skied underneath Testa Grigia. It's a narrow and steep line with two rappels inside (not equipped). It may be the most difficult couloir here because it's really hard to locate, there are rock bars that needs to be avoided and others that needs a rappel. But it will give you an amazing view on Gressoney valley.
