Need to Know

Avalanche terrain, rockfalls are often seen in this chute.

Description

The top of this line is gnarly. It is often wind scoured, and the steep cliffs that border the entrance are exposed. Most often this line is accessed on a traverse from near treeline in the Pinky Chute. The middle has some open snowfields covering boulders and then the chute opens onto a wide apron on a large convex rollover. The line ends at the Williams Lake Trail.
