Steep Snow Pitch Above The Col du Plan

This fine circuit was completed in an enjoyable half day from the Midi station. A narrow snow ridge and steep exposed snow descent leads to the Col du Plan. Here some teams continue on the long aller retour to the summit of the Plan, but a much shorter and fun variant is to climb this micro north facing snow slope and return to the station.
