A fun south facing adventure when headed down the Aygues Cluses valley.
FATMAP difficulty grade
Named Spaetzle in reference to the Pic Allemand to the north, this couloir (and the 2 to it's climber's right) is a great powder, or corn ski.
Ski it when you can, as the south facing ridge of the Aygues Cluses valley can melt out and become inaccessable.
To make a bigger day of it, you can link it with sking another couloir on the same ridge, down valley, or skiing something off Pic de la Touatere on your way out.
