Geant's junction line Map

This is an easy and long access line as hike straight from the top of "Géant". The line need a long hike of 40 minutes more or less where the entrance is really steep but later on there are some trees all along the second part of the line. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty high around here due to the steepness of the line but gets much lower into the trees section. The line finishes on the green piste "Géant" which leads back to the lift again.
