Description

This is line who need some hike, turn right on top of blue slope "Hermine" and hike the "Mont grange sunny line" for about 30-40 minutes. Turn left into the "La Combe" gully, where the entrance of the line is really steep and need some good skills in order to void a fall. Good weather window is needed as this take about 1 hour time. The line gets some sun into the middle of the gully, however right side is more North est exposure keeping the snow better. Avalanche risk is pretty important due to the steepness of the line so a lot of care is needed, trees as well can add as well some hazards. The line finishes on the blue piste "Hermine" which leads back to Cret beni main ski area..
