Description

An easy couloir to access but still a serious descent.

The route is commonly protected by cornices.

The first pitch of the route often has windswept and thinly covered rocks.

The left side of the couloir has big open panels of snow that collect windslab.

Even if mitigating windslab from above, these might be protected and can still affect the ski descent.

A choke at 2/3 height is the technical crux.
