Description

Beginning in the saddle between Twynam and Tenison Woods Knoll, the run begins with a mellow gradient, the run soon drops away sharply into the valley.

The creek line is covered with some pretty large boulders which only seem to fill out in a good season.

Other lines nearby are less hazard-ridden and far wider, particularly to north, which fill in with far less snow, but providing a steep gradient nonetheless.

As it faces west, the downside to this run is that is can be fairly icy if there hasn't been a fall for a while, and later in the season it melts at a far greater rate.

If that is the case I would suggest try your hand at Avalanche Face if this one is looking a little dicey.

Again be aware of avalanche conditions in this area, slides do occur.

The best exit for this one is to head straight back up the creek line.
