Our blaze comes from the Vadu Crișului cave, together with the blue stripe, on the left side downwards. Soon it gets to the Caprei cave. From here our road leads us upwards through the forest. Soon we get to a rock bridge, called the Kiss-Gate Bridge.

From here we go further upwards towards the Deventului cave. The Deventului III cave has the nicest ornaments.

We climb up on the ridge, where we can be amazed by the Bishop`s Rock and the panorama of the look-out tower. The path goes upwards from here unto a ridge.

On the ridge the blue stripe goes right after a while.

Vadu Crișului - Bătrânului cave

Our path follows the ridge till the Sobolanilor Spring. Here it meets the red triangle.

Vadu Crișului - Șuncuiuș

Turning left we go along with the blue blaze, reaching the rocks, descending slowly on serpentines, reach the East look-out tower.

Afterwards we can get to the Crisul Repede via narrow rocky parts. Soon we reach the bridge, the railway station and the Pesterea tourist lodge.
