Description Suggest change

This narrow couloir is located between Dragon's Tail and Dragon Tooth Couloirs. It is similar to those two but with more rock and ice sections comparable to Dreamweaver. Being narrow and rocky means that sun and warmth will rot out sections quickly though it is shaded, but generally consider this one an early season destination.

Overall, I'd recommend this one highly. It's very fun and technical with a fair bit of variety packed in.

The name comes from Powder Project, where I first found it. I'm not sure if it's listed elsewhere or has any other names.

Location Suggest change

Start up Dragon Tooth , Couloir and after the third ledge on the right, a small path will open upward and into the rock. The couloir ends at the top of Dragon's Tail requiring the climbing of the last section up to the cornice there.

Protection Suggest change

This can be climbed with just crampons and axes. Some of the rock sections are smooth and require some technical climbing that could be protected with rock pro. Ice screws would be unlikely to be useful.
