From this point we will begin the ascent by turning left along a path that will take us to the delicate "Los Agujeros" pass, where we must be extremely careful. After it, we will go to a fork located in "Solana del Coto", where we will take the path that we will find ourselves on the left, which will take us to La Naveta to finally access the "Bancalico de Diego".

From the "Bancalico de Diego" we will have access to the geodesic vertex "Peña de Orihuela", which with its 634 masl is the highest point of the Range, a location that is worth visiting because it has some of the best views of the Vega Baja.

The descent will have an area in which the use of the hands will be necessary to progress, once we reach Los Bancos Gordos it will be the moment in which we will go to a section in which the DANAS will show us their destructive power, especially when Going beyond the Ruins of San Cristóbal, after this moment, only a few zigzags await us until we reach the start and end point of the itinerary while we observe the imposing walls of our steep orography
