Description

This couloir can be easily seen from Macugnaga.

Starting from the Belvedere chairlift top station, cross the glacier moraine in the direction of the couloir, it's a wide couloir which is not extremely steep and it provides an excellent ski tour when in condition.

30 mt rope required just in case of hard snow to climb.

The peak and descent provide wonderful views over the East face of Monte Rosa.

Be careful as due to the aspect, the sun can warm up and destabilize the snow causing rocks and ice to come loose.
