Description

From Fairview Mountain's west-east running ridge, drop north into this narrow shot between the cliffs. Have fun on the natural wave that forms on the skier's left side of the line then ride out onto the apron. Pick a line towards the South Bench traverse and take that to the Waterfall Line, or continue skier's right into another couloir that leads to Wildy's lower east side. The best access is to climb the line when conditions allow.
