We enter the high mountains. The main route
climbs on a waymarked trail to the derelict mining buildings of Liat
(including a cabin) and climbs then more gradual towards Port d'Urets.
Then - after climbing a 27oom pass - it descends and continues to Port
The variant starts
immediately with a steep climb up a gully and then traverses above the
lake of Estanh Long de Liat towards Port de la Hourquette (bm418 and
419) and then descends to join the main route.
route passes the well equipped cabin of Mines de Liat, though quite

On the French side however of Port d'Orle (when descending to ± 2100m)
there's a small metal cabin with a source nearby. Alternatively you
could already descend into Spain to find a place to bivouack
