This is a steep N-NE facing couloir off of Witter Peak. There are other options on this Northeast face but they are dangerous and threatened by huge cliff bands. Be wary of cornices that can form on the top of the drop in point. This zone gets a lot of wind.You can approach this line from Rainbow Road near St. Mary’s Glacier.

Rainbow Road

Depending on snow conditions you may be able to drive up Rainbow Road. If so, you can park at the places where it intersects other roads. Do not park in front of someone's driveway or on the side of the road.
