Description

This is an easily accessed line as you follow "Collado de Borreguiles traverse" line and turn right in the middle of the ridge, the hike taking about 10 minutes. The line is steep in the entrance and can feel like a piste into the lower section but there are some rocks which define the exact line. It is well protected from the sun and good snow cover can be found. Make sure to have a look at the weather conditions snow before heading in as this area can be frozen in case of high temperatures leading to freeze thaw. Avalanche risk is pretty important into the higher part due to the steepness and rocks are the main hazards including crossing of blue slope "Collado de Borreguiles". The line finishes on the green piste "Piñata 2" which leads back to Borreguiles ski area.
