Avalanche risk for Nov 18, 2018: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Description

This route is near the Turkey Chute.

Climb a few meters down climb without skis. Be careful as there are a few loose large rocks. At the bergschrund, clip on your skis and ski across the narrow couloir to the left. After a few turns down (be careful not to fall, there is a cliff downwards), head back to the right side across the narrow couloir. Make a left turn to reach easier terrain.
