Snoopy’s Collar

This S-SE facing couloir is a common climbing route to the top of the Citadel, where you could either ski this line or Snoopy’s Backside. They’re both extremely dangerous couloirs through terrain that slides often.

This line is easy to recognize from down below. The Citadel looks like Snoopy laying on his dog house when you look up from the Southwest, and the couloir separates his head from his body. You can enter and exit from Dry Gulch.

The marked zone is approximate as the maps do no justice to these giant cliffs. You’ll be able to see it clearly from down below.

Use “Satellite Mode” if you want to zoom in to take a closer look.
