Exit of wall II+

We begin to walk the track to right side of the dam. In the upper side of the dam we follow the right side of the lake following a little path (signal of Estany Negre, refugio Ventosa i Calvell). The lake is bordered completely to reach a bridge over the river. The signal of left say "Besiberris" (right is for the refuge).
We entry in the barranco (ravine) of Malasvesina with the view of Besiberri Nord in the upper side. The hillside has a hard slope between the grassy green, the little waterfalls and the rocky terraces, in the ravine to reach the exit in a little promontory over the small lake of Malavesina. We see the Col Peyta in right side and the ridge of Besiberris in front of us.
We walk to right side to reach the terrace over the great collection of blocks of big stones under the East ridge of Besiberri Nord.

The best option to climb is the left side of the east face near of the ridge, following some cairns just in left side of the ridge. It's a chimney of II signaled with cairns a little confuse. Some steps are exposed over the ridge with a change of direction to right leaving the rest of the chimney and reaching the entry in a new channel to reach a wall in left side over the chimney.
The wall of II+ with good rock is the hardest part of the climb. For the mountaineers with less experience is necessary the use of the rope in this point (good rocks to tie the rope and an iron ring in right side). A little path in the ground over the wall goes to the final ridge (I+) and finally turn to right to exit among the great stones of the summit of Besiberri Nord (3014m, 4h).
