The itinerary travels the line of peaks and hills that surround the ski resort. Leaving from the parking area of the resort, in its first stretch, the route takes the trail that ascends inside the ski resort to Collada de les Bassetes, at an elevation of 2.2880 m. from there, the difficult journey negins through peaks and hills, through high mountain rocks and meadows. At first we ascend to the Pica Cerví de Durro to then descend to the strategic Port d’Erta, at all times following the dividing line of the mountain. Then the route rises again to the area around Bony de l’Aigua Blanca to descend steeply to the Pas de Llevata. From here it continues on the dividing line, again without a road marked on the terrain, until arriving in Tuc del Muntanyó, to, after a short stretch in descent, to climb a steep slope to the highest elevation of the route: the Cap de les Raspes Roies. A continued descent of 700 m among mountain meadows will again take us to the entrance of the resort.

This is a very demanding journey, both physically and technically, designed for runner with experience, who are used to off-road and high mountain running.
The route can only be done in summer and early autumn, without snow in the journey.
The descent from the Cap de les Raspes Roies enters the peripheral zone of protection of the National Park of Aigüestortes I Estany de Sant Maurici.
