Description

This wide couloir is named for the rideable snow it holds during summer. It's a sustained pitch that opens into a large glacial basin. From the Lake Fork Primitive Route, the chute is obvious, and accessing the top is a pretty straightforward Class 2+ climb with very few technical requirements.
