I've done both of Dana's couloirs, and I'd probably say this one is better. Seemed a bit steeper than Dana and better quality snow - more of that classic Sierra corn! I'll be back to do it again next Spring!
Snowboarded down Solstice Couloir. MEGAHUGE CORNICE! Was able to cut thru the cornice on skier's left, and then drop in literally underneath the cornice. Easily qualifies as the Most Epic Line I've ever ridden!
when we climbed this it was pretty late in the season and the whole route was comprised of giant sun cups and crap ice. the top out was a big scree pile. big fun. easy walkoff on scree, if you can see where you are going :p
