At this point the three trails diverge. We head south on the ridge of Scarisoara and climb to Scărișoara Mare peak (2495m.) Then we descend into Căldarea cu Izvoare. In foggy weather we should not start out without a compass, which would help us keep our direction southward.

We reach a wide mountainback; we go around two peaks and start descending on a road marked by stone heaps. We reach Curmătura Maliței, 1830m where more roads meet
