Description:

combination of aid and hard free climbing, completely exposed until the last pitch on the ridge. this route was a great big-wall achievement in it-s day a still a local test-piece rarely done. the topo has romanian grades on it the free grades scale is from I to VI and the aid from A1 to A4 the modern equivalents are about 5.12 ish for VI free climbing and modern A2-A3 for old romanian A4. Bare in mind that the pins are up to 40 years old and the rock is limestone and fairly brittle on pitches 4-5 on classic topo.

Descent Options:

follow the ridge then a path leading left and descend a gully to reach the main road through the gorge
