Leche's line Map

Follow the track on the right of the red slope "Le Linga", Keep your speed on the groomed track and you will need to cut out right. Usually this is already tracked, which means less fresh snow but easier access. Keep going until you cross a ridge. This is a technical part and is not an easy entrance as it is steep. You can carry straight on until middle of the line, but as soon as you have passed the ridge you are on the line- the angle is pretty similar at any point on this slope, but watch out for rocks or icy sections. This is a long and really good slope, particularly enjoyable with some fresh snow. At the bottom the line will pass through a small forest which could be awkward bushwhacking in a lean season. However as soon as this trees section is passed you will be able to join the blue slope "La Leiche", getting you back to the "Gabelou", or the Linga's village.
