This is a short but demanding ascent climbing from barruera to Durro. The road runs to the Durro narrow road wich, through the forest, climbs with constant zig-zags up a steep slope of almost 300m in only three kilometres. Except for the first metres of the route, wich run practically flat, the rest of the ascent is demanding, with no allowance for rest, as the gradient practically never goes below 10%.

From Durro, the route can be extended to the Romanesque hermitage of Sant quirc, adding 2 km more of paved trail with low gradient.
