Deer Mountain Southwest Couloir

A tight and dangerous Southwest facing couloir down the South ridge on Deer Mountain. There are huge rocks in the middle of the upper portion of this already narrow couloir that make it even more difficult, and it may not be filled in. Climb it from the bottom before you ski it to be sure that you aren't cliffed out.
