Description

Access is easy just before the junction of the red slopes "Trucha" and "Collado de la Laguna", Turn right about 20m before this junction. Initially you go down and R, then more down the fall line, with the odd optional small rocks to jump off. Once you join this the middle section some really nice turns can be easily made. Keep some speed crossing the river as you will need to get back to the red slope "Trucha" and to get access the lifts again.
