Climax Chutes

These are steep and dangerous N-NE facing chutes. They are avalanche prone and contain chokepoints near the bottom which may be impassable depending on coverage. Careful scouting is necessary in a zone like this, and high danger levels will always be present. Lower down the ridge to the East are the Happy Chutes. Be sure to stay off private property when you access this zone.
