Description

The path starts from Hercules Square, on the right side of the Cerna river, next to the spring with termal therapeuthical water. You take the stairs on the left side of the spring and follow the path that leads to "Grota cu aburi" (The Steam Cave). At the junction with "Foisorul Verde" (The green gazebo) take the path further to the right. You will pass an ancient brick-watertank and cross a small river (can be dry) and continue along the valley following the path. Soon you will reach the cliff with the Munk Spring. The water is good for drinking. Most of the routes here will stay dry even when it rains, except for their final parts. This sector is in the woods and in shade most of the day.

Except for Marsul Cel Lung all the routes are dry even in the rainiest periods. This is the driest wall in the Herculane area and the best climbing is from early spring to late autumn.
