Pic de midi linga's line Map

A really steep access and technical line. Instead of doing the whole traverse of the "Leche's expedition line", go straight down after the second ridge. Good navigation skills are needed as avalanches are possible here due to the steepness. Navigation is quite straightforward as there's a little gully to follow. This marks line until the termination of it. The face is well protected as it faces NE. The area is not often tracked so you need to be able to move autonomously through avalanche terrain. The last hazard of the line are the trees, which get thicker after the middle part of the line. The line finishes on the blue piste "La Leiche" which leads back to the Linga village or "Gabelou" chairlift.
