It is 700 metres long and 150 metres high. This canyon is very open and the flow must be evaluated during the spring and after rainfall. It has the longest abseils in Ordino and it is the one that is furthest to the north and the highest. The difficulty can vary a great deal, as some parts are descended in the water.

Access by car is 20 minutes from Ordino along the CG-3, towards the Ordino Arcalís ski resort. After a tunnel and passing the ski resort car park, there is a tight bend to the left with an old road to the right, where we continue until we get to a bridge (where we leave the vehicle). Continue on foot to a path indicated with red and white marks. To the left and climbing the park there is a dam (the first abseil in the canyon is on the other side of the outlet). The descent takes around 1.30 – 2 hours. The return is immediate along the road after the last abseil (below this road). The start of this route is at point 42° 37' 58",01° 30' 00".
