FATMAP difficulty grade
The Middle Creek Couloir is a standout line on the backside area when conditions permit.
You must take an extremely long hike to get here and a really arduous catwalk out.
However, this is the one run on this particular part of the backside that's worth it.
The couloir starts off wide open but quickly funnels into a brutal choke that could require mandatory straightlining based on conditions.
The pitch is quite mellow but the sheer narrowness of the couloir makes it very challenging.
If conditions aren't fantastic, this is not a run to do.
Afterwards, you'll filter onto the egress route that'll lead all the way back to the base of Blue Lake Bowl.
