Description

This line will need some hiking. Make sure about the navigation as you need to avoid some cliffs in the middle of this one. Following this hiking you will get to the top of the university weather house. Then a 50 meters steep line will wait for you, being careful as this line is between rocks and any mistake could be really dangerous. The snow will be often heavy or frozen due to the SW exposure. Remember lack of snow is always a problem there and lots of walkers will be close this area, making it more hazardous. We will aim to join red slope "Águila" but before this junction another 50 meters steep part is waiting for you. "Águila" will bring you back to the village.
