Overview

II D7 R1
In the spring this line gets good sun, meaning that if you time it right you can get perfect corn turns all the way down. It starts becoming doable in the early spring and remains doable up until the summer.

Description

Start in between the summit of Paiute Peak and the shelf where the Paiute Peak: South Slope route begins. Take the obvious couloir down its twists and turns all the way to the lake. The steepest part is up top and gradually evens out.

Topo of Paiute Peak form the east.

The line is in the center of the photo, right next to the rock rib. We had to cross rocks to get here, but I bet anyone with better routefinding skills could find their way entirely on snow.
