Description

This is the main south facing line off the summit of Peak 10, it also provides the most vertical. It can be a great option to ski with the East Face of Crystal Peak especially if you are doing a shuttle at the Spruce Creek Trailhead. From the summit, you can ski straight off, but then you will start to favor your skier's left. Follow this route all the way back to the Spruce Creek Trailhead. If you decide to go for the East Face of Crystal, you can either stay hard skier's right to get over the second pitch of Crystal's East Face, or ski to the bottom and start back up both pitches. Either way be aware of coverage on your skier's right.
