The blaze starts from the Vadu Crișului cave, along with the red and blue triangle, and the red and yellow dot. Before the bridge we are left by

Left side tour Peștera Vadu Crișului - Șuncuiuș

After crossing the bridge we are left by the two other signs too

Yellow Tour Vadu Crisului - Misid vale.

Our blaze turns left after the bridge, goes along the railway, goes round the tunnel, then taking us on a detour we get to the Cu Apă cave or Water Cave. In the followings, the blaze goes along the lake of the cave, then along the railway and gets to a newer detour, to the Casa Zmeului cave. From here we shall go on the bank of a usually dry lake, called the Lake without a Bottom, and we get to the Podireului II cave.

The blaze starts climbing soon, by the sport hall, up to the Podirei Hill. Some small detours take us to the five look-out towers, where we can be amazed by the sight of the downer parts of the Cris-pass.

After the second look-out, a detour takes us down to the Podireu 5 cave. The blaze takes us, at a certain pont, to the main look-out, from where we get a nice sight of the middle part of the pass. A newer 2 minutes look-out takes us down to the Roșie cave.

We turn back to the blaze and first climb among some bushes, then start descending to the dry valley of Sohodol. Afterwards we climb out of here and reach the Cross- look-out, marked with a metal cross.

Before the look out we are lured by another detour to watch the Fugarilor cave. From here our blaze takes us down to the railways, then at the Cross rock it goes on the bank of the lake, but in the meantime the yellow dot and the blue triangle also have fallen behind us. Along with them we get to the Pesterea tourist lodge.
