La llegada a esta confluencia, resulto un tanto complicada en cuanto al acceso del vehículo, que si bien existe una picada sísmica que aproxima bastante, a unos 3,5 Km. de la confluencia, hay unos cañadones que hacen de la picada una cascada de piedras grandes y esta muy erosionada, por lo que lo mejor fue seguir caminando antes que romper la chata, que por más 4x4 que sea las piedras son muy grandes y filosas como para romper cubierta.

En la caminata llegue hasta un cañadón seco, que lo tome y me aproximó muy bien a la 37 69, tome las fotos y emprendí el regreso a Rincón de los Sauces, antes tome unos mates para reponerme de la caminata (unos 8Km. entre ida y vuelta).

Arrival to this confluence, was somehow a little complicated for the vehicle, that although exists a seismic path that approximates enough, to about 3.5 km. of the confluence, there is dry creek with large stone on the path reason why the best thing was to continue walking before to break the vehicle, even for 4x4 because stone were very large and sharp and a tire could have been damaged.

In the long walk I arrived to a dry creek, and I approached a lot to CP. Once on the spot, I took the pictures and started my way back to Rincón de los Sauces where I refreshed myself after a long walk of 8km.
