Description

Another steep couloir that goes down from Testa Grigia. It's a very steep line and it requires perfect snow conditions and experienced riders. it requires two rappels (not equipped) to bypass two rock bars. You will be isolated all day in high mountains so you'll have to be autonomous in all conditions!
