Patou
Vertical drop: 150 m
Facing: North
Technical difficulty: Fairly serious Steep and exposed traverses Complex route finding.


From the classic Chancel side, take a sharp right turn towards Breche de Pacave and continue down a wide slope to the lake. Skiers left towards the long rock-face of Peyrou dÁmount. Staying by the foot of the rocks, keep going down closer to the rock face until looking over the lake to reach the steep-sided couloir.

At the bottom ski alongside the lake and exit via the outflow from the lake. Be careful of wind-slabs may form on the traverse just before the couloirs, high risk of slipping on hard-packed snow.
