The red cross trail starts at Cabana Bărcaciu. We go past the spring that provides water for the tourist lodge and we start climbing on a side range of Bărcaciu. The next step is Scărișoara and we reach the source of Auristei river. So far we have done 2 1 hours of walking.

After about another 10 minutes we are already climbing on the clefty section of Tarniței. Then we cross masses of fallen rocks and around 15-20 minutes later we reach the main crest below peak Scara. Here arrive:

Scării saddle-Suru saddle

From here, our mark joins the crest mark, escapes the Gârbova peak, and from the saddle it reaches it is heading towards the SV on the path that rises on the top of Ciortea Est (2419 m), the most accessible of the three Ciortea peaks.
