Description

The north half of a prominent geologic feature in the middle of Wildy Bowl that separates the upper and lower sections of this glacial basin, the chutes on Kachina Peak's southeast side drop onto the north side of this feature. From the K9 Couloir or Pup's Den, traverse south above a series of cliffs and drops until you see the rocks taper off into a wide open snowfield—the Waterfall Line.
