The marked blue point starts from behind Barcaciu Chalet. We start the climb, cross two small streams, and after 10-15 minutes we descend among the juniper to the brook. We cross the water and climb along the Râul Mare to the lower glacier threshold, with a series of small waterfalls on the right.

Follow the climb to the second glacier. From here we pass through the blocks of stone, and the sustained climb continues. After about 40 minutes of climbing, we roam a rocky wall, we pass a few valleys, pass a cascade. So far I have done 3 hours. There is again a sustained climb on the upper glacier threshold. Another 30 minutes and we reach Lake Avrig (2011m). Here we find the mark:
