BETA PHOTO: Northwest Couloir of Mount Wister

Description 

200 feet of snow to a overhang with a cave.

pass the overhang to the left with 5.7 moves and some aid thrown in.

~700 feet of snow and sometimes ice brings you to a split in the couloir

Take the narrow couloir and work right gaining the West ridge

Location 

It's obvious, starts at the top on the talus cone. 30 min from Taminah Lake.

Protection 

depends on experience and comfort
