Fletschhorn (3984 m), north face

A great mountain well visible from the Simplon pass, the north face of Fletschhorn (3984 m) offer a very wide couloir of 700 meters at 40°, with a steeper final section at 45°-50°. Seracs are dominating the couloir, but if you stand on the right during the way up you're safe. Very good snow conditions right now !
