The trail starts from Trail 10, at an altitude of 1170 m. On a 45 degree slope, climb 140 meters altitude difference through the dense deciduous forest with vines and fallen trees. Outside the forest, you can see the narrow stream of Padina Sindileriei with a small obstacle called Saritoarea cu Scara (1350 m) (as there used to be a wooden ladder that has been replaced by a metal cable). After Saritoarea cu Scara, the valley opens wide and you start climbing a scree slope for about 140 meters (36% slope). Follow the main stream to the left and reach an altitude of 1630 meters at the foot of a rocky amphitheater with vertical walls. The stream ends ahead with a high obstacle. Go up round it on a scree slope (80 meters altitude difference, 53% slope). From the end of the scree, climb on a rocky crest and turn right (east) on the corridor between dwarf pines. Cross some rocky crests and leave Coltii Calului to the left. Follow the trail up on the edge with dwarf pines and descend (south-east) on an inclined ledge to Saua Padina Sindileriei saddle. From here, follow the ridge line among dwarf pines and after a last climb (10-15 meters altitude difference) reach Varful Turnu peak (1923 m) (connection with Trail 20).
