Torrent de Chichin (Dormillouse)


Beautiful alpine gorge, nowadays less difficult than the usual, because of the partial pools recently filled up with debris. The first narrow remains quite dangerous (siphon) is followed by a long leg where the abseils are not that difficult. The final big fall, very scenic, is divided in three legs. If the pools should empty, the difficulty of this descent would return to be very high, as the stream is always powerful.
