Pointe Yield North East Face

30th May. Skiing Pointe Yield north east face with Martin, Andi and Lauren. Beautiful line that I have been looking at for a while to ski. We skied great snow on the upper slopes and then encountered some challenging skiing and fairly dangerous conditions during the main descent with some avalanches and serac danger and debris. We stuck together as a team and skied down in a safe way. Certainly a day that will go down as a ‘learning day’ but these are bound to come around now and again.
