Description

Deviated Septum has been a coveted line for a long time. It is a quick but very technical line. From the lower Nasal Cavity ledge, you must side step or hike up about 30ft to the North, you will see the where. Once you get to the top, you will look down a shady, steep alley, with a few taller trees in it. Deviated really is just a couple turns, but the last one is blind. You must avoid the top tree on your left, then make a quick hard right turn between a knee high rock and another tree with branches that will be right in your face/ upper body. Put up your hands and defend your body! After executing this turn, you will be back in the light and afforded a couple nice untouched powder turns. Deviated is not recommended unless its fresh.
