Description

The Claw has a few different lines like the Playboy Chutes, Double Barrel (Hidden Couloir), Butt Crack, and Dogleg. This is a higher-angle zone than the ridges and bowls leading to this point along the east side of the Ridge Road/Mt Ely Skintrack. All lines end at the bottom of Avalanche Bowl and follow the drainage toward Old Pass Road.
