Route description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

The route passes over a write of chimneys and cracks located on the drain line of the Platter of the Giants, in the upper portion of the valley, between the Girdle of Co?tilei and plateau.
From the Girdle of Co?tilei up, his Bowl Giants its outlines, in a large open semi-circular, a talveg deep and vertical, at the beginning of the appearance of a chimney blocked by numerous overhangs. In the right bolovani?ului what pause in this place and on a short portion of the belt, start the trail called the Chimney in the Bowl of the Giants.
Climbing the first obstacle (L. C. 1) follows a chimney vertically and always wet, through which we move with the help of a few pitons. A first belay station allows us to study the route the 2-L. C., an aspect almost similar with the first portion of the chimney, but with some passages washed and with the plugs smaller and very rare. At the end of the 40 km regroup in the premises of an amphitheater covered with detritus, which slope up uninsured for a distance of almost 20 km.
The wall that limits this area is crossed by numerous cracks. For the continuation of the route we follow to the left the enclosure above mentioned a rift closed, on whose map the outlets safe offers the possibility of an escalade lighter. After approx. 30 m to meet a broad platform, on which we can regroup after the exhaustion of the 3rd L. C.
The following passage (4th L. C.) climbs along a chimney, after which, in a way that gradually loses its asperity, the climb continues over a series of obstacles întreruptede a few girdles placed in the auditorium. We add that the outlets what we encounter on the faces of the very bulk of this portion are completely unreliable. The last L. C. (5) crosses a few passages fallow, what goes up in increments up to the plateau.
