Aiguille de Malatra (3142m), north-west couloir from the Val Ferret

The north-west couloir of the Aiguille de Malatra is very aesthetic. It forms a tiny valley in the middle of steep rocks, and is dominated by the rocky summit which can be reached from the south side of the mountain. The snow conditions were good, powder snow lying on a hard cover, with a few short section of bad crusty snow that had been heated by the sun the day before.
