Trail shared by J. Bella

A steep, exposed, north-facing chute.

J. Bella
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Often wind-scoured and gnarly due to it's exposure in the middle of Lake Fork's east ridge, the easiest access route is to climb into the chute from the Lake Fork Primitive Route when conditions allow. The main chute splits into several branches at the top. As you're approaching the crux, three main tributaries loom above with an intimidating allure. Choose the line you like, and enjoy the ride down.
