Here we realize that we took a wrong path. We decide it's better to turn back, and soon we'll find the red-white marker to Rojals. But we don't want to go to Rojals.

Here we go right instead of following the marker. We enter in some tall grass field, but soon we find a way out. We should have followed the sign.

Here we find a cross red-white which means that thisis a wrong way (to Rojals). Here is the main point where we split from the touristic foot path. Good luck!

After 120 m of bushy climbing, we go out to the light.

We decide to go back to Montblanc. (We were intending to go to Espluga de Francoli, but it was clear that the road was going to other direction)

Here we decide it's better to go left. We correctly presumed that going the other way we'll intersect our coming route, so we could have walked 4 km more.
