Couloir Bouchkail, Pointe Tournier
Possible first descent into the Argentière basin21 December 2016
On December 17, the three Alpine guides of Chamonix Jonathan Charlet, Chritstopher Baud and Brice Bouillanne made the likely first descent of the "Couloir Bouchkail", a new line in the Argentière basin (Mont Blanc).
The canal opens along the orographic left of the Glacier d'Argentière basin, under the Pointe Tournier (3649 m), one of the numerous elevations of the long ridge linking Les Courtes to the Aiguille de Triolet. All this area is extremely popular for steep skiing.
