Cristo Couloir

The "Monte Cristo" Couloir, or Cristo Couloir, is a long popular 40 degree South facing Spring line off of Quandary Peak. Be wary of avalanche and rock fall danger on this line, and watch out for uphill hikers when you’re coming down. You can park at Quandary East Trailhead or you can drive up closer to Blue Lakes if the road is open in the Spring.
