We started from Planoles and this time we take a cart to Dòrria instead of taking the GR-11 that we have already taken on the same occasion and that being very entertaining and with some step where we have to set foot on the ground, we discarded .
Once we leave the town on a steep climb, we take a track that climbs slowly up the hill to Coll de la Creu de Maians, where the difficulty increases as at certain moments we have to cycle through a magnetic meadow where the cows graze and the wheels are attached to the floor in a considerable way. We keep climbing and in some cases those who do not carry eBikes have to drag the bike because the terrain is very broken and the short climbs have a considerable positive difference.
We continue climbing along the Collet de Sant Salvador where once again we find some ramp that makes us tone again, and that does not give us a little rest until we pass through the Pla de les Salines.
Again, we keep going up the constant steep hills of the Sierra de Gorrablanc, we pass under the Puig de Dòrria, until we reach the Pass of the Thieves, where some of us decide to descend towards Planoles, causing a brutal descent over the views that exist and for the first and very stony type of land and then more narrowed and milled road, passing through the Roc Blanc and until reaching Collet de les Barraques where from there we will alternate the GR-11, path and track.
And those who decide to continue to the summit of Puigmal or because they go with eBike or because they did so many years ago and do not remember that, they climbed towards the Tosa of the Step of the Thieves, a rise slightly and low by Coll de les Clotxes until arriving at Clot de la Pastera where from 2650m until 2910m the pedal has finished, now it’s time to push the bold bike, an all-encompassing route that crowns its reward for its wonderful views contemplate Tap to take a group photo (the remaining ones) to take shelter and retreat and undo climb to the Step of the Thieves, where we will make the descent already commented.
