Profile Dumitru Chivu - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

   Born: 17.03.1941, Busteni, Prahova County
Deceased: 06.09.2016, Busteni, Prahova County

He was born in a Log at the march 17, 1941. As a child, his playground, as well as that of others, for me, was the forest. Later on, when I saw the rock climbers heading up to the ridges, and he went after her. This started a love for the mountains and passion for the ca?aratura. At age 16, in 1957, at the Young days, the first ca?aratura Tudor Hurbean, the instructor who taught him the art of using it as a training ground for the plaque at the entrance to the route of the Fissure is interrupted by the retreat Co?tila. In 1959, he attended the school of the ca?aratura, organized by the Romanian Federation of skiing, the bobsled, and mountain climbing in the Ialomita Cave (the instructors, The Floricioiu, offered Ieremia). Among the peers, with a lot of talent here, and Petre, Cristina, and all of the Logs. Dumitru Chivu, he worked at the club, Dinamo, Brasov, romania, where he climbed a lot with Nicolae Jitaru, get together with, among others, in the 1960's, The Blue one. On October 1, 1961, he went to do his military service, during which he asked the House Officers of Brasov, romania. In 1964, he went out a champion, "at-speed", and in Cheile Bicazului, at the finals of the '64.

Together with Miklós Nagy, he was able to establish a record of the velocity of the Crack of the Blue, which still endures after all these decades. 2h 22min.

In 1969, he was awarded the title of master of sports in rock-climbing. Dumitru Chivu has won a lot of races, a lot of it was the trails that climb up into the country, or across the country, but the most important ones are still openings.
The keys of Bicaz gorge: 1962 — the Spurs rank VI (Dumitru Chivu and László Karácsonyi, one and a half days, with a bivouac on the wall: the first ascent of a grade VI was part of the principles of rock climbing to modern, from single-entry);
the awards for the winter season:
1971 — the Three Overhangs in the wall of the Marigold (Dumitru Chivu and nicolas Said, in seven hours from the base to the crest);
the route of the overhanging climbing the Chimney of the Ciorînga High (Dumitru Chivu and nicolas Nagy).
Climbing across the country. Because of his exceptional Dumitru Chivu has been asked often over the country. In Bulgaria, it has been several times since 1963, when he, along with László Karácsonyi, they got Cernata Stena grade-VI to B. Has gone to Poland, Czechoslovakia, Italy, and France (this is where he stayed for 20 days at the national school of skiing and mountaineering), in the Pamirs, Yugoslavia, and Greece.
