 Turnul Bobot 

Description

Follow the road (DN 67D) that connects Băile Herculane town with "Baia de Aramă", trough the Cerna Valley. At the milestone that shows "25km to Băile Herculane" (it is on the backside of the milestone, when you come from Băile Herculane town) the roads splits. The dirtroad to the left, follows the Cerna river and passes "Cheile Bobot" (Bobot Gorges) towards "Cerna Sat" (Cerna Village). The asphalt road to the right goes over the gorges, crosses a bridge and continues towards "Baia de Aramă". The Bobot climbing area is divided in three sub-areas:

1. The area in the gorges with cliffs at the roadside and a cliff across the Cerna river (Sectors 1 and 2)
2. The area afterthe bridge on the road to "Baia de Arama" - called "Faleza Animalelor" (Animal Cliff)(Sector 3)
3. The area above the waterspring - "Faleza Marină" (Marine Cliff)(Sector 4)

For the two sectors in the Bobot gorges you can park your car at the base of the routes, in the gorges, on the side of the dirtroad. For the other two sub-areas park your car on the right side parking after you crossed the bridge on the road to "Baia de Aramă". To reach "Faleza Animalelor" , from the parking go back to the bridge (do not cross) and take the path that goes straight up crossing the small meadow on the right side.The path will enterthe woods nearto the first route of this sector, "Gaia". To reach "Faleza Marină", from the parking go back to the bridge, cross the bridge, and take the path on the left side at the end of the bridge. The path goes up and to the right, crosses a field of boulders and after ~10-15min. reaches the main cliff. There is a waterspring on the roadside (right side) just before you reach the bridge with the parking.
