Geo-Tags: CH-GR 
Route:Piz Turba couloir nord

From Juf we followed the bottom of the flat valley in the direction of the two evident couloirs of the Piz Turba.
As we rise from the bottom of the valley the snow improves from icy to inconsistent sugar (although there is not much of it) We climbed the left couloir: steep (max 45°) and narrow at the exit. From there we reached the summit of Piz Turba in 20 minutes. Nice descent on mixed snows, worked by the wind in the first and very nice at the bottom of the couloirs.
