General characteristics

 Sursă Cristi Popescu 


Peretele Uriaș (the Huge Wall) rises the waters of Hășdate river and it is the highest rock wall in the area. Here you will find all kinds of routes, classical routes, protected mostly with old pegs, to modern routes with bolts.

Classical climbing routes are sometimes described by section of loose rock or very old in place protections.
Most of the popular routes start the base of the wall, immediately after you cross the Hășdate river.

Descent routes: classical routes exit the Domogled plateau, at the top of the wall. Some modern routes (e.g. Vaja con Dios) finish in the middle of the wall, you can continue on another route until the plateau or abseil down at the base of the wall.
