At the top of "L'echo Alpin" chairlift turn right. The first section of the line is not steep and can feel like a slope isolated but navigation skills are really high. After the gentle part about 200 meters long, go to the right where you can see the "L'echo alpin" chairlift. Steep and technical part is here, with a lot of avalanche risks, remember right side is a ridge so keep straight in the steep part. The line gets a lot of snow and well protected from the sun as North Est, good snow are often present here, or icy snow is case of rainfall. Lowest part of the line will be into a large gully with still a high risk of avalanches. The line finishes on top of "Linga" gondola, or red slope Le Linga" which leads back to the bottom of the linga.
