From the CAR Cabin we take the red triangle route (35-40min) until we take right on a yellow marked route, goes up on a hill and then we take the path to the right (the left path goes into the White Valley).
We continue the path for 20minutes until we go past 2 big rocks and we arrive at a fountain (this fountain is not always clear unless it rained few days before and it's completely covered in the winter). Here we take some water and we continue our path upwards for 15-20 minutes, we pass 2 couloirs to the right and then we get into Costila Valley which is quite large. 30m on the right we have the Costila Refugee.
Qickly we take a short snak we leave here some of the food and the water for the return and at 9:30 we continue our way on the route left from the Refugee on the Costila Valley for about 100m and we take another path on the right up the hill then left on a ledge alongside a wall. Then the path becomes clear, goes up and right to traverse into Galbenele Valley.
