Old Soldeu Map

Although the access to this run is from a beginner area, do not underestimate what's involved. Sudden steep terrain where lots of drops and non-feasible lines open up in this area, once in a mellow area through the forest waits for you to keep ahead finishing at a bikepark area where some drops wait for you as well finally merging to Ós. At the top of Soldeu go towards Astoret and drop to Fagina. Gradually leave Fagina on your right traversing to the left where the forest line is. Heads up, cliffs ahead do not engage your line straight away, at least your first time in the area. There is an easy way down the ridge.
