La Combe North Face Map

This line includes about a 1 hour hike from the top of "La Combe" ski lift where skins are helpful. Follow the line "Mont Grange Sunny Line" for the access. The line has got a really steep entrance and needs some extreme skills as the gradient is around 60%. There are some rocks in the line about if there is low snow cover, line gets well protected from the snow due to the face exposure. Avalanche risk is pretty high due to the steepness of the line, and the fact this is a gully- the whole face could go in a big avalanche. The line finishes on "La Combe's Steep Line" and then blue slope "Uski" into the Cret Beni area.
