Distance: 12,5 kms.

Even though the Noarre shepherd's houses are so attractive and they are in a pretty place, this stage, that also follows the crossing of the Pyrenees, gets all it sense when gets to know us all the Blaus lakes.
The Noarre shepherd's houses doesn't has access road with vehicle and even though this they keep so good. There is no longer any inhabitant fixed and the edges of Noarre are only used for summer.
Even though doing the Certascan peak there's quite a lot unevenness to overcome, the route isn't so long. In the event of need if from the Certascan pass we go down directly to the refuge we will save 250 metres of unevenness, a few more than an hour.

1.- From the edges of Graus we go up a deciduous forest very varied to the edges of Noarre.
2.-From Noarre we continue climbing little by little, we pass the Forat de Guerossos and the way climbs boldly until the Pleta de Guerosos.
3.-We climb right along the river (we have left to the right). We cross it to the Pleta Vella separating us from the river and find it close to the Blau del Mig lake.
4.- We turn the valley to the east separating us from the lakes to gain the Certascan hill. Soon we entered the right scree to win the ridge and the peak of Certascan.
If we are tired or bad weather from the neck of Certascan, we can go straight to the refuge of Certascan.
5.- Let's lower the peat (it may be snow until July). We continue along the river to the largest lake in the Pyrenees, the Certascan lake that flanks to the Certascan shelter.


The carrying-out of this circuit can involve some riskes and troubles that each person must value according one's own experience, exempting from responsibility to its promoters. If you doubt, you can get carried away by a mountain guide.
