Description

Another short line but with some serious steepness at the entrance of this one, avalanches can come often into this area if the snow is not stable. Remember we are again on a N face where the sun is not coming often and where the base is often frozen snow. A cliff can be taken into the middle of line but this optional.The bottom of the line will finish close the "Maitena" carpet, getting you back to Borreguiles.
