Description

The couloir d'Oncet is the prominant couloir on the North ridge off the Pic du Midi Bigorre.

Its striking, high, rock wall makes for a dramatic ski.

It can be approached from the bottom, or from the Pic du Midi Observitory.

If approaching from the Pic du Midi, one may desire a rope for the ridge traverse.

It is a very scenic ski either way.
