Description

This is an easy access line as from the top of "Les Combes" chairlift a 20 minutes hike is needed on the left until the summit of the little peak. The line is really steep and the risk of fall as there are some rocks as base into this part, so make sure there is a good snow cover. The line gets is well protected from the sun and gets a good amount if snow what make avalanche risks pretty high around here. An unusual hazard to be aware of on this line is the track in the middle of the line where skiers often goes there, what mean avalanches can take more than yourself. The line finishes on the red piste "Le Linga" which leads back to the linga ski area after a lower section with less steepness.
