Morgin's village north face line Map

This is a long access line where a walk of 45 minutes is needed - just turn left on top "La Folleuse" chairlift and walk until the flat area empty of tress. The line is steep into the middle section of the forest, and feels like a forest line but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover. The line gets away from the sun but the low altitude means it doesn't keep the snow so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here due to the thick trees. The line finishes at the bottom of "La Folleuse", or you can drop into the village beforehand.
