A bit of a long hike with Freeride gear but totally worth the turns when de conditions are good!

Description

Started at 6:00 from Finhaut, a beautiful road going through the forest to eventually enter the bowl.

After roughly 1200 vertical meters we realised once again why skitouring gear is supposed to be as light as possible;-) With our heavy freeride set-up those last meters didn't go as fast as we wanted it go.

It did give us the chance to scope our lines a bit extra.

On the ridge we tried to find and entrance to get to the main ridge on the face.

Big cornices and weird snowformations lead us to descent in the regular main couloir.

We took the highest possible exit out of the couloir with a hard skiers left te get into the more spicy terrain.

We made a video again which you can see in the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkv_gkQB9wM
