Made my first descent of the Slot Couloir. Plenty filled in and didn't really see any rocks. Pretty firm snow so avy danger seeemed minimal but also looked like you would really pick up speed if you were to take a spill. The ski back down the Phantom Slide Path was no fun. We ran out of daylight half way down and had to negotiate the right hand side of the waterfall section in the dark.

Kick ass photos!  How steep is the slope at the crux?

If I had to guess, I'd say 40 degrees, but that's only the 15 ft section right below the entrance. I just side slid through that part. After that, the pitch gradually mellows to about 30 degrees at the bottom.
