Couloir Chevalier, Chamonix

Another nice line for Aurelien Ducroz and his team of Doud's Charlet and Adri Coirier. The Chevalier couloir off the Petite Aiguille Verte. Access from the Grands Montets lift then a climb up the North-West ridge of the Petite Aiguille Verte visible from the cable car.

It's a 350 meter couloir, rated 5.2/E2, the start is steep, over 50° and narrow and may require a rope to get to the skiing. After that its 350 m at between 45 to 50°, you fall, you knock yourself around quite a bit.
