Higher up Tajos de la virgen. Map

Turn right on top of "Laguna" chairlift then continue into the direction of "Utlima lines before laguna's freeride" turn left and hike the gully of the line. The entrance of the line is really steep and need some good skills, good weather windows as well as we are around 3200 meters and weather can change really quickly. There are some rocks everywhere and the gully you have hiked up is the only way to go down. The line is well protected from the sun and a good amount of snow can be present. Avalanche risk is high due to the high altitude here and the steepness, another other hazard to be aware of is that any mistakes of navigation can make you fall from a big cliff. The line finishes on the red piste "Olímpica" after passing by "Utlima lines before laguna's freeride" line which leads back to Laguna ski area.
