Cabagnou SE Line Map

This is an easily accessed line - turn left from the top of "Creussans" chairlift. The line requires you to walk for about 30 minutes below the summit of the "Pic de Cabagnou". The line starts in the area where there is no rocks on the face. The face is steep - 50 degrees in places. However there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover in the spring season, so a good weather window is important in order to avoid any navigation mistakes. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important due to the steepness. The line finishes on the red piste "L'Estany" which leads back to the "Coma" ski area.
