Blanchot's line Map

This is an easy access line, take the left from "Braitaz" chairlift and hike up until the first peak. This is about 15 minutes walk on the arete, entrance of the line is really steep and need some high level skills and technical requirements as the first part is a crossing over a cliff, area is a south west exposure with some rocks, remember to check the weather forecast as there is often a low snow cover on this face before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty high due the steepness, lower part will lose some steepness and get more gentle before the line finishes on the blue slope "Blanchot (Torgon)" which leads back to "Braitaz" ski area.
