The Huge Chute (THC) Map

This is one of the main chutes in Wolverine Cirque. It's relatively wide and just shy of 40 degrees, but as with elsewhere in Wolverine it can form a big cornice on top, making the entrance tricky. The center line is straightforward from there, but narrow shots exist to the sides for more technical variations. The apron then stays nice and steep for a while beneath the chute.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
