Description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

The lower area of the scarp north-west of piatra Craiului, between the valleys Vladu?ca and ?pirlea, present in a wide array of amenities a "world" of towers and edges, known only to those who have dared to brave the wilderness of the places and obstacles on the route.
The tower ?pirlei is the last roll there and most striking, situated on the line of an edge on the left of the valley ?pirlei and which upstream you are losing around your Waist from the Middle. The itinerary up to the entrance of the artery. Climbers who want to take the escalade on the trails of the Tower ?pirlei have the opportunity to choose as a base of departure the cottage Plaiul Foii or refuge ?pirlea.

Valley ?pirlei is a tributary on the right of the Barsa Tama?ului. In the lower area, the valley has a creek whose springs are located in the vicinity of the refuge ?pirlea. The upper portion of the valley, upstream of the izvorul remembered, is wild. In the forest area, it presents a few jumpers that can bypass on their faces. When the spruce forest begins to thin out, leaving room jnepenilor, the obstacles of the valley are getting washed, and some even inaccessible. Climbing down the valley, steeped more between walls, or around them saritorile on the sides, get in the right Tower ?pirlei, which dominates the region. At first glance, a circus with rock blackened and wet, what gird valley ?pirlei around the tower, the lack of cracks and the height of the wall blocked by the overhangs and streaked chimneys long impresses us.

The obstacles his clean and air are actually what we wanted: a tall wall (about 240 m level difference), plugs good, with varied relief, very difficult and without vegetation. At the base of the wall, closed upstream of the wash Circus Black, start on the front of the Wall of the Tower ?pirlei three alpine routes, escalated in the premiere of the climbers club Dinamo Brasov.

The leader of these achievements, master the sport Mircea Opris, was kind enough to give us the details on the obstacles that characterize them. Initially, the trails have received a number of orders, and subsequently they were given and how many a name. Thus, the route from the left (the most upstream) is called the Route of the Eagle (the route ?pirlea 3).
Following the trail, Chimney Long (?pirlea 1), lies below the point of entrance being situated on a wider one, that grassy.
On the same brâna, but in the right Chimney Long from the Tower ?pirlei, is taking shape on the front of the wall a crack open and slightly grassy, what
drive on a threshold suspended above us. The line crack and the threshold are part of the first obstacles of the route ?pirlea 2 (Front Strungii from the Tower ?pirlei).
