Description

Another easy access line as we need to hike in front of "Les Combes" ski lift. The line is steep in the first section and gets with less steepness into the lowest section. The line is away from the sun due to the face exposure, however low altitude of the line need some weather checks to make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is really important due to the steepness of the line, however lower part close the trees make the risk lower. The line finishes on the blue piste "Hermine" which leads back to main Cret beni area..
