get from Port de Salau (bm422 and 422bis) to Port de Marterat (bm423),
you need to descend considerably towards Salau and then climb again to the borderridge.
down towards Salau is easy on well waymarked trails and the
continuation on tarmac to the derelict mining building of d'Anglade is
even smoother. Beyond d'Anglade however, wayfinding to Col de Crusous
requires attention although there is a faint waymarking. Then you have
to cross another ridge to reach the red/white waymarked trail towards
Port de Marterat.
Beyond Col de Crusous there's a small and basic cabin (Cabane de
Crusous) with running water outside. Further on - 15 min. before reaching Port
de Marterat - there's another - larger and more fancy - cabin (Cabane
de Marterat). In this case there's no source nearby, you'd better gather your water
in advance, ±500m before the cabin. On the spanish side - half a hour
of descending from Port de Marterat - there's a nice lake where you
could make your well-deserved bivouac.
