Route Description

from the hut of Tazaghart, climb on the left on the small cascade and then go in direction of West, to the south plate of Tsoukine. The corridor start just after a big block of rock which is very easy to identify from the hut ( see photo).

From there you can start the downhill following the same way you used to climb. Before the rock block, take the right side.
