Description

Take the Becca chairlift in Les Menuires and as you exit the chairlift you slide forwards and take the skis off.

Hike up the face in front of you, roughly 30 vertical metres and under 5 minutes.

From here skis back on and along the ridge to the right where you will see the Becca couloir to your left and running down towards the Cote Brune chairlift way below.

Steep and challenging for the first 50m and then it opens out.

Few issues to deal with on the way down and a great long pitch to keep you smiling till lunch.

Gets morning sun so best early if it's powdery.
