Pic de la Capa's line Map

This is an easily accessed line. From "La Capa" lift take a left and hike until the top of "Pic de la Capa's" summit, which takes about 10-15 minutes to the top. The line is about 45 degrees all along the face of the mountain and this line gets a lot of sun (It faces East) so make sure good weather conditions are present before heading here as a lack of snow and/or a good base can make things dangerous. The higher part is well exposed to the wind and avalanche risks as well. The line finishes on the red piste "La Tossa (Arinsal)"; turn right before the arête with the forest part which leads back to the main area of Arinsal ski area.
