Leaving Podragu saddle behind we head towards Balea soon reaching Podul Giurgiului lake (2226 m.) We climb on the foot of Mircii to the ridge inbetween Mircii (2278m) and Arpașul Mare (2467m) peaks, and then we descend to Șaua Vârtopului. We cross La Parul cu fier peak and reach Nerlinger memorial (2287 m.)
Lake Buda is in the nearby as well. In order to go round Arpașul Mic peak we descend through a cauldron. Then we climb to the ridge again and reach the most spectacular section of the trip. The place is called La trei pași de moarte and if someone is reluctant to cross it he\she can go round it by following the red dor trail. The next place is Portița Arpașului aka Strunga Mică, 2175 m, this is where Fereastra Zmeilor is located.
Here arrive also trails
We could not continue our climbing without special equipment, so we descend on a grassy slope and cross a section interspearsed with masses of fallen rock and spot of snow even in the summer. We reach a saddle from where a trail travels:
We go to Lacul Capra (2330 m.) Here a memorial stands for the four mountaineers who were killed by an avalanche. A small ascent and we reach Capra saddle.
