Is that the same as the Orient Express?

The orient express is part of the Messner couloir. I believe from the Washburn photos, that it is the chute just to the left of the hourglass looking formation that makes up the Messner couloir. Near the rescue gully. I understand that the orient express got it's name from all the Japanese climbers who fell from that area over the past years.
