This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be moderate. It's remote, it features low exposure (e1) and is typically done between December and March. From a low point of 2.6 km to the maximum altitude of 2.7 km, the route covers 463 m, 0 vertical metres of ascent and 137 vertical metres of descent.


This is the final entry into the Polarity area and despite the long traverse required to get here, it's well worth it as this run especially stands out due to all the epic cliffs that surround it despite its lower pitch.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
