And yes, this stopping place is the prelude to a short yet very challenging climb, an ascent that will test the resistance of any pilgrim. Once overcome, this difficulty, walkers will be situated at the highest peak on the French Way in Galicia. With its 1337 meters of altitude, from this place they will have superb views over the Sierra de O Rañadoiro and of the valley, at their feet, as well as, from behind, the top of San Roque, which the pilgrims passed previously.   Care should be taken with the cold and snow, two disadvantages of winter.
