Directa's line Map

This is an easily accessed line as you take a left turn from blue slope "Directa". The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover. The line gets a lot of sun due to the West exposure so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here, the other hazard being icy conditions in the morning in this part of the mountain as altitude is pretty low but also high temperatures can make the line heavy in the afternoon. The line finishes on the blue piste "Maribel" which leads back to Sierra Nevada village.
