More a crossing line than anything else, however the bottom 100 metres can be surprisingly good.

Description

Take the "Trucha" red slope and follow it for 50 metres before the division where it splits into "Carril del Collado", where you turn off it to the left. This is pretty flat and may involve 5 minutes of walking or poling underneath a rocky area on the left. Keep descending gently down and left under the liftline of the "Laguna's" chair until open slopes allow you to go down the fall line. A 5-6 metre cliff can be taken if the snow here is really good but it is optional. Finish your line at the red slope "Cuesta de las Artesillas".
