Need to Know

Be prepared to rappel, unless you are certain there is enough snow to ski and/or air over the two cliff bands.

Description

From the bottom of Chute The Moon, there is an obvious cleft on the skier's left. Steep skiing through a moderate choke brings one down to the first of two cliff bands. There is just a short snowfield between the two drops; it isn't really worth transitioning to skis if you are rappelling. Anchors for each cliff (both on skier's left) were in good shape as of February 2015.

In a big snow year, both drops may be skied over and/or aired. With a thinner snowpack, it may be more prudent to rappel both. A 30m rope is plenty for each rap.

Note: Powder Project's "maximum angle" projections are inaccurate; portions of this line approach the mid 40 degree range.
