Collado de Borreguiles traverse Map

This is an easily accessed line with 10 minutes hiking needed after you turn left, 20 meters after red slope Cordón's junction with red slope Collado Alto. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are a lot of rocks about if there is low snow cover and still a few with good snow cover. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here due to the lack of steepness where the main hazards are the rocks and the ice. The line finishes on the red piste Carril del Collado which leads back to Borreguiles area or Laguna de las Yeguas..
