Col d'Armène (Bauges range), north face couloirs

Clearly visible from the satellite picture (see below), but very difficult to guess from the quiet south side, the couloirs of the north face of the Col d'Armène, in the Bauges range, hare formed by layers of clay that are in between limestone layers. Then came the tectonical movements that made these layers steeper, for the great pleasure of the skiers ! A nice day with Andreas.
