Worth the traverse, the snow is often deep here and there's a couple of good cliffs to jump off too.

Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Low Exposure (E1)Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Description

A long left traverse from the main Couloir chute, this line is also accessible from Hawaii 5-0, Bushrat and Whiplash.

Stay high and you will end up on top of a large rock in the middle of the bowl.

When you drop in on the other side of the pillow, enjoy a short but totally-worth it powder field.

The closer you hug the rock the steeper the pitch, but everyone who has managed the couloir this far can find a fun line in here.

Drop in underneath the pillow for a fun, fairly sizable drop, or keep farther left for a couple of smaller less intense ones.

This zone often ends up full on avalanche/cornice debris, be careful, especially in low light!
