Extract of text from my blog:

This was a straightforward walk from the road. I left my autocaravane in the shade (1677m) at N42.20126 E1.75112 and walked up to where the path starts at the Collado de la Trapa (1678m) at N42.19887 E75245.
The path then goes past Font Freda (which is nothing more than a hose pipe with a trickle of water. I recall a number of years ago following a Michelin guide to a fountain which filled me with anticipation of a Gaudi-like creation which turned out to be equally disappointing and uninspiring) through trees to follow a dry stream, the Torrent de la Font d’Ensija.
Through more trees to emerge at (1944m) N42.19384 E1.752151. The path comes out on a ridge with grass that any park manager would be proud to control (2151m) 42.18793 E1.75455, goes past the Refugi Delgada Ubeda (2159m) N42.18793 E1.74846
Slightly steeper rise to the summit marker at N42.18943 E1.73806.
The return route matched the ascent route. With tempting views of Pedraforca much of the way.
8.99km, 961m total ascent
