Starting point was Mirkovici village...from there we have opted to take the so-called and famous "Yogurt path", which is marked by the plastic parts of yogurt cups. It makes one wonder about the ecological side of marking the mountain trail with plastic markings...on the other side, the path is wonderful and beautifully direct. It goes steeply upwards, as if the original trail-breaker sought the steepest sections and decided to mark them. Path leads through the area of many a fallen tree, remnants of the forest fires. Two places require some rock climbing skills (an easy 3 scramble). The ridge remains yet a mystery to me, as the dense fog descended upon us on the last moments of the ascent. Return was done via normal marked trail to Mirkovici.
