Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

Chimney Chute

The main descent is straight down the chute through two hallways, which are not super narrow.  There is a skiers right option if the main line has already been hit.  It is a great route but can have serious avalanche hazards and potential to pin a person into a rock or drag over a cliff.  Pay attention to the convexity on the top, this route can get wind loaded.  The exit is a right turn down the first creek to the parking lot.
