The Initial Traverse From The Resort of Les Contamines

This is a steep traverse from near the top of the Buche Croissee chair lift. Quite steep terrain here and known to both avalanche and 'creep' heavily giving some serious issues to negotiate or avoid by approaching from much lower down. Equally often this is a fine and fairly simple if steep traverse with many existing tracks sometimes giving an icy 'rattle' across!
