This line goes through the rock bars below Pizzo Gropera and is not easy to navigate (even for experts!) The line starts under the Groppera lift. Ski down keeping to your left then ski under the cables until the slope starts to narrow. Here ski the narrow exit on the right. Don't go left because there are some large cliffs! Continue skiing, keeping your left until reaching a second more evident couloir that ends on the piste.
