* Spanish side :
From the Refugio de Tabernès, a trail heads West, along the north side of the stream Barranco de la Madera, and leads to the pass Port de la Madèra, which is nothing else than Port de Cauarère in french. From there, we can either circumvent or climb the Pène de Millarioux, this surprising strange outcrop, which offers an interesting viewpoint to the Batoua. Then, after a walk down we reach the Peña Blanca, slightly higher, after a gradual climb. The return is made the same way, but a loop is possible while going down south from Port de Plan. It leads to a point of the track quite far from Tabernès, below the junction to the Viados barns, and involves a significant walk to get back to the vehicle.
* French side :
From the Hospice the Rioumajou, when we reach the junction between
Port de Cauarère and port de Plan, it can be reached via both ways. The walk to Port de Cauarère is steeper then it can be advised to take it on the way up. At one point, as we reach the upper side of the forest, we discover a wide black slope made of slate screes slowly decreasing, in which we can easily decide which point of the crest we plan to reach. The Pène de Millarioux and the Peña Blanca are visited as described for the spanish route, and the descent can be made as soon as we reach Port de Plan. However it is more than adviseable to bag Pic d'Ourdissetou (Pico de Urdiceto), and descend via the eponym pass to Rioumajou. The portion from that peak to the pass, unless we descend significantly to avoid it, is full of easy scrambles, but on loose rock.
