General characteristics

 Ţancul Ascuţit 


Tancul Ascutit (the pointy spire) is the tower next to Costila Hut, serving as multi-pitch climbing school, training and alternative for climbers in case of bad weather.

The tower offers several classical routes as well as sports climbing routes.

Tancul Ascutit guards the entrance to Costila Valley on its north side, most of the climbing routes being found on its south face.
