Description

This north facing shot, although often wind affected, provides fun and moderate skiing in an environment that feels really big. The top can be heavily wind affected, so it is often best to boot down a little ways before stepping into the bindings.

Approach via 25 Short, then traverse south to the obvious col below Point 10,696.
