Description

This is the left of two couloirs known as Double Dragon. This is to the left of Double Dragon (Right) and is easy to identify as it's a 35 degree couloir punctuated by a chockstone about mid-height. However, this chockstone is not suspended overhead like Double Dragon (Right).

Climb moderate snow until you reach the chockstone. This chockstone is most easily passed on the left with a few steep mixed moves. From here, follow the path of least resistance to the top.

This is also known as "Chi-Town" in Sperry's Front Range Ski Mountaineering book. It would make a great, technical, and steep ski descent. Do one rappel (you'll have to facilitate an anchor) in the middle with a 40m rope.

Location

It is left of Double Dragon.

Protection
