Description

A fun alpine couloir that's not crazy steep or technical but still has some serious things to consider! This couloir generally fills in quite well early season (much like Rethel Couloir) but as the season goes on, a cornice forms both threatening the line and also making entry difficult.

Come prepared for some blue collar work to get through the cornice with the possibility of a rappel.

The upper part of the line is more of a face feature and may hide windslab so be sure before you drop in.

The choke isn't steep and the run out is ok but if you fall and slide left, there are crevasses on the glacier below!
