“This NE-facing bowl holds great powder days after storms. This line teases out the max vertical.”— Cody Feuz
At this point, the line transitions to skiers right and down an open east facing slope with some rollovers, gullies and scattered brush. If you drift to far skiers right, there are some bigger cliffs to watch out for. Finish in the obvious wide drainage. Transition to skins, and go back for another lap, or pick any of a dozen other small peaks. There are countless lines in this area in the 500' - 1500' vertical range and almost all of them will be untracked. You can also link up The Beast Chute from this point in the canyon.
