Description

This alternative entrance into the North-West Face is extremely treacherous, and narrow.

Skiers attempting this have very little room for error.

To get here, ski past the regular entrance for the North-West Face and cut left a bit further down and look for a "Notch".

Depending on the snow coverage, you may very well have to take off your skis/board and walk a bit.

Pass through the notch, put on your skis/board and then zig-zag down this awkward ridge-line through three different chutes.
