Manzanilla's line Map

Another short cut between slopes, but this time red slope "Manzanilla" will bring us to the top of our line. We will take the bottom of carpet lift "Maitena" as navigation guide, remember to check your entrance well as cliffs are present. The face is well protected from the sun but the base can be often be frozen which makes the line complicated. Avalanche risks will be present on the top of the line as this is steep. The lower part of the run will be quite gentle without many hazards apart from rocks in case of low snow cover. You'll get back to Borreguiles plateau with "Maitena" carpet lift.
