Blueberry couloir Map

Nice couloir on south face of Maritindan, it makes a right turn and steepens up to ca 45°. Steepest part is probably where the couly makes the R turn, but you encounter 50° only climbing up because you prefer to stay on the climber's left of the couly traversing on a conoid of a lateral little couly (6th photo), and then you countinue you're ascent on ca 40°-45° to the top. However you'll not ski that 50° part as you ski in the centre o rightside (point of view, facing up) of the couloir which is mellower and more enjoyable.The first skiing part is narrower than the one after the turn, then shortly the couloir ends and you'll ski down the open conoid on ca 35° terrain.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
