This 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.


Start at the Glacier Gorge TH, and go to Mill's to Black Lake and on up to Green Lake, which is surrounded by Spearhead, Chiefshead, Pagoda, and Long's.


Pickets, if required. Consider avy gear depending on conditions.
