Description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

Bordered to the East by the Mysterious Window to the Dragons, and to the West of the Gate Arpa?elului and the Tips of the Goat and vanatoarea lui Buteanu, the Ridge Vârtopel-Fauna throws rocks in the majestic high in the skies. Thanks to the narrowness of the Ridge Vârtopel-Fauna often has a character air. So you can say that you did the ridge, you have to go through twice, in different directions, because the appearance, relief and dificuta?ile technical differ.

Route the easiest is to the East-West, rated 3A, with the entrance of the tourist trail that passes on the Window of the Dragons (Gate Vârtopelului or the Small Window of the Arpa?ului), over the Ridge Vârtopel (1B), the escalation of the Ears of the Rabbit on their faces east, which are lighter, and rapelarea on the faces of the western, and in the end output in 1 - 2 boosts through the Gate Arpa?elului (Strunga big V or the Big Window).
From here there are two variants of withdrawal: the first one goes down south on a valley full of detritus up in the tourist trail. Although the descent is slightly steeper in places, and the rocks unstable make it more interesting, the summer time is get in the path of bottom in about 20 minutes. The second variant follows in the next line strongly ascending of the ridge to the top of the Goat.

The route harder it is in reverse, rated 4A, because the entrance through the Gate Arpa?elului assume, after reaching the Gate Arpa?elului, the escalation along the 2 lengths of string on a high wall of about 40 meters, and also the escalation of the Faces of Western Ears of the Rabbit, the more difficult than girls opposite, eastern, which is rapeleaza then.
