Description

From the top of Parsenn Rapid you ride below the top station to the right. From there you can hike the ridge. This is a very sharp rocky ridge for experienced riders with extensive mountaineering and climbing experience. The easiest access is traversing on the right side of the ridge. There are a few entries depending how long you walk on the ridge. Those lines are not frequently ridden because of its access but very nice extreme and technical short runs to the piste can be made. The lines are visible from the Haupertali T-bar.
