Little Mont Grange Line Map

This is another long hike access line from the top of "Fontaines" chairlift, follow "Cerf's gully line", and continue the hike to the peak in front of you, this takes about 40 minutes. The line is really steep and need some good skills, good weather window is needed due to the time to hike until the summit. The line is shady and can keep some good amount of snow. Avalanche risk is pretty considerable due the steepness of the area. The lower section has got some trees to be aware of. The line finishes on the blue piste "Uski" which leads back to Cret beni ski area after passing via "La Combe's Steep Line" before getting back to the blue slope.
