A cool rappel into moderately steep but very tight Couloir

Description

"Door to door from the I-70 park-n-ride, it takes 1 hr 40 minutes. And that's by no means a blistering pace. From the parking lot, cross Tenmile Creek, take the bike path for a quarter mile, and the gain the Mt. Royal summer trail. 50 minutes later from the saddle of Mt. Royal, skin up another few hundred yards, throw your harness on, strap your skis to your pack and down climb a few hundred feet to a "cliffed-out" area and look for a tree with old slings at the base. Rap down from there. It's roughly a 1,400 ft skin, followed by a few hundred foot down climb and rappel, leaving you with an 1,100 ft or so ski. About half of which is a tight, hence the name, couloir before it opens up for a cruisy ski to the bike trail along I-70.

Skate it back to the car and then go meet your buddies at the bar. We started at 6 and made it down at last light. Not a bad ski for a school night."
