POINTE YELD - STEEP SKIING

Pointe Yeld, North face of la Dent du Géant is a beautiful route to plunge into the steep ski lines

Discovery of the steep ski or really steep itinerary, it is possible to modulate the difficulties of the ski descent from Yeld Point, according to the passage left bank or right of the glacier.

Difficulty right bank: TD, 50 °, on 500m, 5.2

The approach is fast in ski touring, from the Skyway Helbronner cable car or Aiguille du Midi and a short climb with crampons to join the first ridge. Then follows a first downhill ski debonair but exquisite, then a quick climb to get on top of the descent proper, AMBIANCE!

The route travels between the seracs of the north-east face on 800m to the Periades glacier. From here, it is possible to put the skins to chaining with the Puiseux point, the Tacul and Capucin glacier neck, the Mallet shoulder or the shoulder of the Tacul. Big day then ;-)

On these slopes, generally oriented north, are in good conditions until late in the season.

GREAT SKI, in a fantastic setting, but you have to know that the fall is often forbidden 

Available from February to June
