ChamLines 5 - glacier du Chardonnet

Aurelien Ducros and his cousin Doud’s Charlet (world freeride snowboard champion) are skiing a line that Ducroz hasn't heard of anyone skiing before. An east facing couloir starting at 3040m and leading down to the glacier at 2550m - maybe the 490m hadn't motivated any precursors.

The access isn't particularly easy and there are some good examples of splitboarding by Doud, skiing roped up as well as fixing a belay on ice.
