DescriptionThis couloir hits the saddle between Keyboard of the Winds/Long's and Pagoda. It is longer than it looks. It makes a reasonable descent line or scenic cardio outing up Pagoda.
It maxes out around 35 degrees, and one may have to cut climber's left to avoid slab at the bottom. A few chimney variations climber's right up top might be fun with pro.
Wet slides are common off the slabs around here.
There are a few more couloirs between this line and The Trough that hold some short spice.
