Winter 2015 was sketchy one in Zermatt but during the end of the season things setttled a bit and we went east to check out the Tyndall couloir.

We were busy catching up to a slow start after i had some issues with my new skins , we quickly made up time by choosing a more direct but steeper traverse.

The timing was still good but as we approached Torre Castelfranco the wind picked up a lot! Like really a lot. We reached a plattform on top of the entrance and i went on a reconissance rappel sine i wanted to see how the rappel would look like. Pretty soon i found a trusworthy anchor and thought that lower down the wind would probably settel down a bit.

The wait for Charlie at the anchor turnded to be quite long since communication was impossible and he couldnt feel the rope coming tight as signal to come towards me.

Eventually we rappeled the 15m cliff and slowly started getting a view of the amazing couloir ahead of us. Conditions got better and better and we got dry snow all the way to the bottom which was unexpected considering it was April.

We felt the spring again as we reached Macugnaga and with some ice still hanging on my face we looked for a place in the sun and bought a panini before heading up to Monte moro.

A few joyfull turns and your left with this long ass traverse to the end of the damm which as we found out can be a real pain in splippery conditions

As for the exit of the tunnel above the mattmark see, you might have to play marmotte and shuvel your way out.
