Need to Know

This line is direct south facing, so in addition to the gamut of stability concerns, beware of dust on crust conditions, or at worst, slide for life conditions. But if you nail timing and get it soft....

Description

Three options:
  1. Enter the line skiers left by executing a few exposed moves on a goat path above cliffs to gain the gut
  2. Take it straight on
  3. Skiers right to brave the even more exposed & often filmed Fin variation.

After exiting the coulie, you can step right to wait for your partner in a fairly sheltered spot on the No Name Bowl Traverse. Or, rip it down to the bottom of No Name Bowl.

Ridiculous throttling of Once is Enough by Owen Leeper. Easy to see why this won GoPro Line of the Winter honors.
