Description

Paws is a line down the spine that overlooks the Hunziker area. Like Dog Leg II just above it, Paws is a steep, technical couloir off a narrow spine that spills into Hunziker. Never go alone and only go with a qualified local as a guide. It's very likely you'll run into a rope before you get there.
