The trail marked with a yellow cross and a red band begins to descend from Custura peak. After a few meters on the edge of the chasm, the slope is sweetened, reaching the Mării saddle (2330 m). This is where we get on the Marii peak, descend into Ciumfu Mare saddle (2295 m) and climb up the Ciumfu Mare (2335 m). We cross Ciumfu Mic and go down to Gruniu saddle. From the saddle it can be avoided Gruniu peak(2294 m), going on the level curve on the southern tip of the peak. Peak offers a beautiful view. We cross the Gruniul Mic (2298 m) and descend into the Lazăru saddle (2215 m). A tedious climb takes us to the Lazăru peak (2282 m), and after a high saddle we reach to the Văcarea peak(2284 m), from where you can see the whole route to Tulisa. The trail follows the ridge. After a few serpentines, we get around Sohodol peak (1900 m), we go down to the Pilugu Mare saddle (1740 m) and climb up to Pilipu Mare peak(1764 m).

It is the last tip of the gully before entering the forest. We cross Pilugu Mic and we go out into a clearing, and we return to the top in Făgețel saddle (1390 m). From here we climb the clearing to the east, and through an uphill through the forest we go to the top of the mountain Făfățel on the right. After a few trenches of the World War, we reach the Tulisa valley. We descend to the right, bypassing Toulisa peak, and we get to a saddle. We avoid further wooded ridge, climbing slightly to the left and after 10 minutes to empty out again. We lower the slope through the forest, after La Fântana, follows a few serpentines, we pass through more poisons, and we reach a saddle below the high voltage line. After Iepure saddle follows a swampy area, and we get on the cart road from Sterminosu, which takes us to Uricani.
