Testa Grigia North Col (3023m) – Nort-Eastern Coulior

The north-eastern couloir is an ever steep and somewhere extreme itinerary where you have to have absolute knowledge of places and snow conditions. From Champoluc you climb up to Colle Sarezza (2717m) by the lifts. You descend for about 200m, put on the skins for about 450m. The descent begins on quite gentle bumps that lead to the narrow and steep couloir. You cross right, until you find the couloir goes down to the valley. Follow it for about 1km to the parking of Punta Jolanda in Gressoney La Trinité. By the lifts then goes back to Champoluc.
