Vallons of La Meije - Saint Antoine couloir
The Saint Antoine couloir has a small vertical descent of 300 meters. The access on skis or snowboard is by the Vallons de La Meije then the Zone Interdite. The Saint Antoine is on the right of the Enfetchores. This extreme couloir is a narrow groove in the rock face. Crampons, an ice axe and rope are needed to climb up. The couloir is narrow and very steep (48.5 degrees max). The descent is vertigo inducing and exposed: sensitive people shouldn’t do it! It is not often skiable! but it’s a gem in good conditions. It belongs to the category: Extreme couloirs of La Grave - La Meije!
