Conche's line Map

A similar line that the "Leche's expedition line", but this time you are taking an easier entrance. The entrance is steep at about 50 degrees, technical and complicated. You start your line where people usually go to look at the view, your line is an E face which means it gets early sun. The main issue will be your entrance, remember we are only just above 2000 meters and in case of warm weather beforehand this part can be icy. Sharp edges essential. Once the entrance has been negotiated you aim to get to the left side of the mountain in order to get back close the "Leche's expedition line". For this you turn to the left and pass on top of a little ridge. This will avoid you staying in the middle of a big line with avalanche risks. A good weather window will be needed for this line as it will take some time. Once the ridge is passed it is less steep. You will then later on join a wooded area where some good turns can be found. Passing this area you will need to cross over a river and hike back to the blue slope "31 - La Tovassière", which will bring you back to the Morgins village. This walk might take about 30 minutes and there is a little wooden bridge there to cross the river.
