“A steep north-facing chute between cliffs.
— J. Bella
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Tucked into the rocky slopes at the south end of Wildy Bowl, this surly north-facing line is a Taos classic. Strong winds hit these high alpine slopes after storm systems move east out of the Sangre de Cristos, filling in this line with deep storm slabs and snow that lasts well into summer. The most common access route is to climb the chute when avalanche conditions are low.
