Description

A sunset lap down one of the numerous short couloirs off the East shoulder of Mt Elmsted.

This line collects more snow than the rest of the shoulder and is more likely to be filled in for lower snow years.

The access from above the summer trail involves navigating some pretty dense forest that could lead to some sporty veg-belays and a spicy ski out.
