Would you ski this terrifyingly steep line?

Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr went to Kappl in the Austrian Alps to search for some spicy lines and they were not disappointed. Here is one of the steeper faces either of them has ever ridden. And when we say steep, we mean insanely steep.

Just getting to the top took a couple of attempts and got very, very hairy a couple of times. Due to the rocky face it was hard to hold a fluid line, the guys reported, but we can all agree that, fluid or no, it’s a helluva line.
