The lower part of the scarp north-west of piatra Craiului mountains, between the valleys of the Vladu?ca and ?pirlea presented in a wide array of amenities of a "world" of the towers and the corners, known only to those who have dared to stand up to the wildness of the places and obstacles along the route.
The tower of ?pirlei is the last one soon, and the most obvious, which is situated on the line of the edge on the left side of the valley ?pirlei, and the upstream you are losing around your Waist from the Middle of it. The trail up to the entrance of the renal artery. The climbers who want to take in the escalade, on the tracks of the Tower, ?pirlei have the option to choose it as a basis for departure, the cabin Area of the Sheet, or the refuge of the ?pirlea.

The valley of the ?pirlei is a tributary on the right side of the Bars Tama?ului. In the area of the bottom of the valley is a small creek, whose sources are located in the vicinity of the refuge, ?pirlea. The upper portion of the basin, upstream from the source reminded, she's a wild one. In the area of the forest with a couple of jumpers which can be around the side. When the spruce forest begins to thin out, leaving room jnepenilor battle of the valley are getting washed out, and some of them even impossible. Climbing up on the bottom of the valley, deep between the walls, or around him, saritorile on our faces, we'll be in the right of the Tower ?pirlei, which dominates the region.

The barriers of clean air are what we've always wanted: a high wall (about 240 m in elevation), the plugs are good, with a varied landscape, it is very difficult, and without vegetation. At the base of the wall, closed off at the upstream of the wash of the Circus-Black, starting up on the face of the Wall of the Tower ?pirlei the three trails to the alpine, escalated for the first time by the climbers club, Dinamo, Brasov, romania.

The leader of these embodiments, a master of the sport, Mircea Opris, was kind enough to give us the specifics on the challenges they embody. Initially, the tracks have been given a number, and then they were given a name at a time. Thus, the path to the left (in the upstream) is called the Path of the Eagle (the route of the ?pirlea 3).
The next track, the Horn-Long (?pirlea 1), it is located below the point of entry, is situated on a wider one, that every.
At the same brâna, but to the right of the Chimney in the Tower of ?pirlei, it seems, on the face of the wall crack open, easy, green roof, what is
the leads on the threshold, suspended over our heads. The line of the crack and on the part of the first obstacles of the road ?pirlea 2 (Front Strungii of the Tower of ?pirlei).
