Cross a bridge with handrails by the panels (950m) and climb uphill on a steep path with white-yellow waymarks. When you meet another path, turn right (5min) (995 m). This wide path zigzags through a pine forest before becoming less steep. Soon an impressive rockwall . A wide fire break opens up the views (37min) (1160 m).

When you encounter a house on your right, bend left following a white arrow (44min) (1250 m). The path ascends to a sand road (50min) (1270 m). Turn right and follow the road until you meet another road (1h) (1230 m). Turn right again.Peñón Blanco rises in front of you. Also in the next junction (1h06min) (1175 m) you go right.
