Description

This run is a consistently steep shot for B-Ridge with connected and adjacent north-facing terrain that increases the slide-threat. Spoon your turns, or only do one lap, then move on to another run so as to leave some pow for the next skier that comes along.

Funny thing: I actually skied over a bird that was hidden/nestled under the snow mid-way down this pitch. I don't think it was mortally wounded, because it flew off in a panic. Watch out for birds in the snow as you descend!

At the top of Rectangle Peak in white-out conditions, getting ready to ski down in the worst possible style.

My sloppy ski tracks barely visible mid-descent of Rectangle Peak West in white-out conditions with a crappy camera. Sorry.
