Cecilio's traverse to plateau line Map

This is a really easily accessed line as blue slope "Cecilio's" will bring us close to our line, one hundred meters before joining the "Emilio Reye's" chairlift. Remember the snow cover can be often icy in this part and a decent base is needed as rocks are everywhere. The NE aspect will help to keep the snow fresh, but you need to make a careful avalanche assessment. The lower part is less steep, giving you access back to the "Borreguiles" plateau.
