Description

A classic in the Wedgemount area The wind normally produces a cornice at the top of the couloir that needs to be managed.

Many opt to rappel into the line, however this may require creative anchor building depending on the conditions.

Climbing around is possible from skiers left, however this requires extreme caution as this results in major exposure Please note, approaching this line is outside the scope of this route.

However, It's possible to approach from either the Parkhurst-Rethel col, or the opposite shoulder.

If there is concern about cornice fall, these should be considered
