The pass of the upper part of Sighistel valley is to be found on 350-400m teritory. To visit this area we shall continue our way after the Sodolul Chifului brook, going along it, and passing another streamlet under falling rocks. 80 m from the falling rocks the shape of the streamlet changes. Its walls start to be perpendicular. They give the atmosphere of a wild canyon, the distance between the walls is minimized to 2 m, occasionally. The rocks above our head give the impression of a long tunnel.

The Coliboaia streamlet arrives on the top of some falling rocks at the left, the first water supply of the Sighiștel valley.

The coldness of cliffs is perceptible, the pass is getting narrower, the walls are 30 m high. The horizont is merely a tight stripe, the light comes only to the upper areas, where moss covers the region.

The pass suddenly comes to an abrupt end, with a 7m high cliff standing in our way, which requires proper equipment for climbing. There is a small lake at the foot of the rock, but in case of rainy weather a huge waterfall falls down here. The Cheia Rea canyon is visible above the rock (1m wide), but it is unattainable. This area is extreemly wild.
