From here we descend through the stone slabs to Tăul Agățat (2208 m). From here follows a very difficult climb to the ridge.

The path is narrow and climbs in the serpentine under the Judele Mari, in Judele saddle (2370 m), which gives us a breathtaking panorama. We cross Mount Bârla and we go down to its southern side to Lake Zanoaga.

Here is a crossroads:
