Description

This line is a true aesthetic steep skiing run. it requires excellent skiing skills and also excellent mountaineering skills. It is a very steep couloir blocked in the middle by a 60m rappel that you will have to set up on your own. The view is amazing since you're surrounded by the whole Monte Rosa. the line is exposed to avalanches so it requires firm snow conditions.
