General characteristics



"Cariera" (The Quarry) is also known as the Feregari Gorges, and is situated at the side of Băile Herculane town. You will take the road that goes around the town and just above the football field, you will leave your car at a small gipsy settlement or in front of a guesthouse called "Platz Pitoresc". You will take the path straight trough the gipsy settlement and after you pass the cottages you will get to a spring with good water.
From the spring , follow the path going further up on the small dry valley and you will reach the gorges. The routes are on almost every cliff of the gorges and most of the routes have their names written on the rock at the base. Here you can find sport-climbing routes as well as some multi pitch routes.
