“A quick day ripper straight out of paradise.”— Ben Stone
The entrance to the chute should be clearly noticable, if you have hit 8,400 ft. you've gone too far. DO NOT DROP IN unless you are 100% sure you are in the right chute. There are big cliffs around the corner from the chute. The chute is SW facing and gets really corny middle to late afternoon/evening. It can be really tracked out and looks like an inbounds run on really crowded days, so keep looking above for rockfall and avalanches. Take a short tour back to Panorama Face and take another lap!
