The Puig de la Canal Baridana or Vulturó (2,648m) is the highest peak of Serra del Cadí but in my opinion the most beautiful peak of the range is the Pic de la Costa Cabirolera or Roca Punxenta(2,604m) because the view of the north wall is nice from this part of the ridge. As curiosity this peak is the higher point of the province of Barcelona but it’s a little strange the confluence of the provinces of Lleida, Girona and Barcelona in range of Cadí.
The mountaineers prefer the North access because is nice but it’s harder than the South access. The North access needs the ascension of hard coulouirs with snow and ice in spring and a lot of stones in summer. It has a few of coulouirs but the easiest is the Canall del Cristall. It’s not very difficult for mountaineers but it’s not for hikers. The South access is easier across long ramps of grass or even you have a North access across Paso de Gosolans at East, but it’s a little bit longer.
