Description

Really easily accessed line as we are passing by the "Montebajo" or "Montebjo II", this time our navigation will be guided by the artificial lake, we will need to stay above this one during our traverse. This face takes a lot of sun and snow cover needs to be checked, frozen runs are to be expected early morning. The first part of the line will be the steepest for 50 meters, before getting into the traverse, aiming to join blue slope "Zahareña" bringing us back either to "Stadium" chairlift or the bottom of the ski resort. Rocks and cliffs can be jumped if wanted however make sure you check the conditions as the whole area can be well frozen.
