Description

This cross-loaded couloir starts nearly at the summit of Mt.

Aetna, and travels down 3,000' to CR 230.

Starting from the road in Garfield, travel about 1.3mi to the base of the couloir.

The very bottom can be skinned, but it will be easier to boot at some point.

Travel up the couloir until it turns into a ridge.

Angle right, the summit is very close.

Ski the enormous run back down.
