Description

At the middle of the black slope "Les Rhododendrons" turn right mostly at the end of the black slope, just under a lower section of trees our main aim to cross all over the this area and joining back the red slope "Le casse-noisette". No real danger into this line unless maybe some small trees, main hazard will be the crossing back to the red slope "Le casse-noisette" where a lot of peoples are going over there, do not go too much into the left as there is a little river into this part of the line. Area is around 1500 meters a low snow cover can happen over here, so remember to check the weather conditions and this will damage easily your equipment.
