Description

On this side of Bettaforca you have a bit of work to do at the start, but ultimately the more work you put in the better the descent will be. Get off the chair lift on the looker's right, head down Del Colle run as if you intend to follow the red run and gather your speed to shoot up alongside the rocks and begin your traverse. Travel around 20 to 30m on the skier's left. Then you can begin your descent, there is almost always some exposed rock which is worth avoiding if you value your equipment. Then there is a fun and easy descent that will help you return back to the piste somewhere between C14 and C13. Just head back in the direction of the Bettaforca chair lift. There are no major drops or any cliffs, so just enjoy the descent keeping to the right of the rock face.
