Before starting this route, we advise you to check the news bulletins, as there is a high risk of avalanches in this area. If there is heavy snow, we recommend that you avoid this route and follow the Illa Refuge route instead: although both routes pass through the same valley, the Illa Refuge slope is much safer.
