Apocalypse Couloir

This N-NE-E facing couloir is highly technical and dangerous. To enter from the top requires a rappel or a series of rappels and the incredibly narrow chokepoint most of the way down is blocked by an ice bulge that will require ice climbing skills to get up and a rappel to get down unless the snowpack is especially deep. Avalanche danger is exceptionally high and even a small fall could easily kill you. You'll pass beneath Son of Apocalypse Couloir on the exit.
