When this is filled in enough to ski, it is Precious!
FATMAP difficulty grade
Hidden behind the Pic des Crampettes, you wouldn't know this super fun couloir was there! The approach in the winter can be skinning up from the Tournaboup parking lot and then skiing back to out to the car.
But in the spring, when the lower elevation doesn’t have snow, it's more complicated, and takes a lot longer.
My Precious is narrow and steep at the top.
At the crux of the narrow is the rock drop that either needs to be filled in enough to ski, navagated around, or just sent.
When you can get this one, it's precious! More info and photos at www.couloirquest.com (look 'The Gem').
