Description

Turn right 50m after you start down red slope "Collado de la laguna". You will be able to see a flat part- this is where we going. A little walking or pushing will be needed for 10 minutes above a large cliffband (do not turn L too early) then you will be able to see the 3 seater Dilar's chairlift in the distance. Turn into the L after the ridge into a steep gully, 45 degrees and narrow in the middle section, with occasional rocks. At the bottom you cross a snow filled riverbed and retuen to the "Trucha" red run. Not recommended in poor visibility due to the traverse above a cliff in the first section.
