General characteristics

 Peretele Animalelor (Itvig) 


Peretele Animalelor is a very popular multi-pitch climbing area in Postăvarul Massif, especially in early spring and late autumn. Being south oriented, the routes all exposed to the sun for the whole day, which makes it an ideal destination when there is still snow, cold or bad weather higher in the mountains. The area is easily accessible from Brașov or Bucharest.

Details on climbing in the area:
from Predeal or Râșnov drive towards Cheile Râșnoavei (Râșnoavei Gorge). Continue on the dirt road that crosses them towards the clearings after the gorge, until the road is blocked by a barrier. On the left of the barrier you will see Poiana Inului (Inului Clearing) and the valley in the forest that leads to the routes.
Water sources: there is a water spring in Cheile Râșnoavei, in between the road and the river. You will find another spring next to Poiana Inului, 15-20m before the barrier, 20 meters above the road.
Best to climb: spring & autumn
Accommodation: at the lodges before Râșnoavei Gorge or in a tend next to the road (before or after the gorge). Be careful: Poiana Inului is often visited by brown bears (there is even an observation point for them on the vista). We recommend placing the tend before the gorge.

Traseu clasic

Muchia Iepuraşului 5A, 6a (5c, A0)

Traseul Muchia Iepurașului este considerat una dintre cele mai ușoare rute din Peretele Animalelor, Masivul Postăvarul. O creastă pe alocuri verticală, stâncă relativ compactă și asigurări suficiente. Oricum, particularitățile traseului necesită o bună pregătire și atenție, pentru că există și zone mai friabile sau încărcate de vegetație.
