Description

This is a showy and very steep and narrow line off the north side of Pic d'Espade.

There is a large rock in the middle of it, about halfway down.

Depending on how it fills in, this can be an ice buldge, or has a narrow passage way on skiier"s left.

One can also rap over it (using your own anchor).
