|D&D couloir solo.|
The face sees a lot of cross wind, does not wind load severely, and the couloirs are often surprisingly safe. To my knowledge, there are six named runs on the face, and at least two other distinct couloirs, as well as runs on the Northwest, south, and east aspects. As a result, link up possibilities are pretty much endless. I can't wait to go back!
