From Jabbaren the path follows the main wadi west for a short distance until it reaches a small ridge that is the watershed, beyond which the land begins a gradual descent to the western edge of the plateau. A small wadi starts to cut itself a couple of metres below the surface, and after a few bends it ends abruptly in a large steep slope littered with car sized boulders tumbling down between two outlying fingers of the plateau. The path zigzags down the slope, which unlike the Akba Tafilalet, is uninterrupted for the full elevation of the plateau. The descent to the bottom, where a few acacias grow at the foot of the cliff, will take about two hours, over a difficult boulder strewn path. Coming up the other way takes about three hours, plus another half hour till the campground at Jabbaren.
