In 1951, after about seventy meters of climbing in Crack Blue, the team of Aurel Irimia and Emilian Cristea left, entering a variant, on the right. The following year, the two climbers have reached eighty feet below the ridge, where they could no longer advance, subsequent attempts, with stays of three to four days in the route, they didn't bring any advance. The head of the club of which they were part had called him and he put them in mind to make this climb, otherwise you will cut them any subsidy. The face of this "ultimatum", the climbers Irimia and Cristea have climbed again on the road now known and have spent five days in the wall. At the point where they could no longer advance. Hadn't been invented yet by then the system of drilling of stîncii and no rings of expansion. Exhausted after this prolonged stay, they asked the third member of the team, Radu Constantin, what lay in the cirques of the Valley White, to come to the ridge it with rope to pull her out of that place. This was executed. He took two ropes of by eighty feet each, passed on to the refuge Co?tila in the hope that you will find someone there to help him. Not finding anyone, he started alone with the burden of the Valley of the Co?tilei, by the ridge. When he got there is the rendezvous so he could no longer direct the cords toward the place where they were his teammates. In discussions, they decided to postpone the operation for the day. Constantin Radu has stored all the material in the ridge of the Valley and White went to cabana Caraiman where he slept. The morning he walked in the dark to the cabin and arrived in the ridge once with the dawn. From there, from the ridge, after he tied at the end of the two ropes a barrel, he left them in the bottom. While browsing the eighty feet with traction from above, the two they beat up a couple of pitons into the cracks in the way.
