Description

The entrance of the line is quite easy but then becomes steep, you just need to remember we are going from behind to under a ridge section with steepness, rocks are everywhere. From near the top of the line you are doing a descending traverse leftwards to access the lower part of the slope, avoiding dropping down and R into the rocky streambed below. At the bottom of the line exit on the usual blue slope "El rio", going back to the bottom of the ski resort and the Boreguiles Gondola's. Watch out for snow conditions on this run as it will be potentially serious if icy.
