Pyramid Couloir in Apr 2011
The green route is the one we followed to avoid the steep snow bank in the middle of the couloir (>60deg). The direct line is the red one, but seasonal conditions and skill level will affect which way you go. Photos from later in the season or from lighter snow years indicate an easier climb. I measured the top section at 53deg. A large cornice overhung the last part of the climb. 03Apr, 2011
