Yankee-Kiwi Couloir

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
When this classic route was first climbed it followed the steepest line into the Gunbarrels that existed at the time. Climb either 3.51i or 3.51ii, then up a steep ice couloir to the left of the Left Buttress (the Yankee-Kiwi Couloir) to the base of the Gunbarrels. Continue as for Route 3.48. Awesome fun on a sustained line.
