This steep and icy face is often in best conditions in the spring where the snow sticks to the glacial ice and the sections over 50° are ski-able which is quite often not the case in the winter months. There are three possible exit points onto the ridge with the left hand exit being the most sustained. Normally people ski from under the Qui-Remue itself which is the needle on the lookers right of the face.
