El desceno de la canal del Agujas tiene una salida bastante vertical (apróx. 50º). Durante unos 25m apróx. es la parte más delicada según el tipo de nieve. Si está suelta se generan purgas que hay que gestionar. Si está muy duro es impracticable para bajar deslizando.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
