Description

This is the steepest and most complex couloir of the three. It is very narrow for the first few meters and then finishes up on the big slope below the Stolemberg.

Just before you arrive at the lower Funifor station of Indren, take the steep slope on the left. The entrance of the couloir is near a rocky head. It is possible to check the condition of the couloir from the Funifor lower station, which is a good idea because there is not always enough snow to get in. At the end of the couloir, traverse to the right to descend the wide slopes below. From here ski down along the Diretta Indren itinerary to the middle station, Gabiet.
