Description

This is an easily accessed line as we need to continue straight for 20 meters from red slopes "Cordón" junction and "Collado Alto" before taking a left into the ridge area. The line gets some steepness in the higher section and can feel like a piste in the lower section but there are some rocks to avoid. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is present due to the steepest part of the ridge at the lower section of the line, remember line can often be frozen in the morning due to the aspect, or slushy in the afternoon. The line finishes on the red piste "Carril del Collado" which leads back to Borreguiles area or going to the "Lagunas de las Yegas" area.
