Rode the X on whymper. Travel was excellent throughout the day and the whymper north face was in good shape. Large cornice on top of the X and middle crux had to be down climbed. Overall excellent snow in the couloir and found very little sluffing. Small 10-20 cm wind slab found at the top 10 m but further down very supportive. What a serious line

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
