Route description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

The route is 4 in length and it has the character of the "direttissima" to the entry in the right side of the trail the Hardy and out to the left of the route of The, at the top of ?ancului a kid. The rock is extremely compact, and the difficulties of the peak in the length of the 3rd. Titus was followed by a Cloud Forest (the Old man), and Ida Here. Along the way they have been used for 20 insurance, fixed to the intermediate (19 to anchor mechanical, + 1 department), and the 2 anchors in the pool.

The first length From the entry point on the crack of the Hardy's, you have to cross right at a steady 3m on the wafers before they get the first insurance policy, a hospital, which, once exceeded, leads into a fissure left oblique, it receives some number lower if necessary. The plugs are good and one's brown-bagging it helps the overcoming of the rift, at the end of which you can fix for a friend. The front of the top of the ask for a lift, sir, but the plugs become larger. Another to mark the passage of a new face, where the inclination of the wall, it returns to the vertical. The route continues, slightly skew right, where you'll meet the other 2 expansion bolts in succession, situated at a distance of approx. 3m from each other. In this area, and these passages increase in difficulty. After the last of the insurance, the track is turning slightly left, crossing over her face when he's down, then back up 2 feet on the ramp and to the left, up on a platform, comfortable, every where, later in the 6m on top of the first pool of Life. 30, grade 7
The two in length: The pool pass it around to the left, moving to a more difficult part, that is imposed by the balance, and until we get the first ever. On top of the trail meets the tr. Hardy, the the browse of a few meters in the common (leaving the length of the 2-to-Hardy), in a face-down. When you meet the girdle from the top, dashed over to a hospital, don't cross it, but go beyond the spitul to the right, straight on to the front of the top, by means of an exit more difficult. A new spit up on my face, he leads us on a dihedral angle and very light, but that are no longer in the insurance business. Here, the potential of a fall is greater. The passage is hard and soft at the end, culminating in the output of the above, the boat ramp in Hermann Buhl, at the pool, with 2 anchors, chemical make-up. I don't come back here, but out front the top to the right, ensuring that spitul basis of the above. Bringing together a get a few feet away from the traverseu on big holds. 30, grade 6a

The third length Is a path is particularly rich in passages that hard, it's very, very athletic and impressive, but it does not pose a risk. Basically, the face of a 35m, which starts slow and surplombeaza, in the end, the last 5 meters. It contains 7 of expansion bolts. Departure to the first anchor, it is the light, the plugs are good. Picking up the first anchor, it is done on the intakes, very low in the hand and the foot, to the leg, it's a small step crucial to the balance and structure here. The overcoming of the 2nd and the 3rd of the anchor it is even more difficult, the ac is symbolic and distant, but it was the 4th of the pipe is from the plugs not bad, but the front of the top is really nice and soft. Hand of a finger, and the lack of plugs on the right are doing a very difficult one. The above is a bidoigt, and the other plugs a good run in the 5-a anchor, but if whatever is good, hold on, we're back on the outlets, the bad, and the very few, but the best "falls" a little bit. By doing a little traverseu to the right, and find a pocket of good in the hands, followed by some small rapids, and the edges slightly left of the top. Make sure with 6 of the anchor, followed by a lift-without a lot of trouble. The outlets are pretty good, but the wall is starting to surplombeze, and the effort is great. The passage which follows is made in a semi-circle to the left, on the side of it (under the anchor 7) with the large plugs in her hand. The end of the length of the games up and slightly left until you get the grouping, which is common with The, a little, "anyone can do", over the surplombei. 30, the grade 7b-7c
The fourth long Face, what should be deleted leaving the last one just beyond the front of the first insurance because it's very close. We catch up with the help of a threshold, and the two recesses, of which the first one is the worst. There are two large plugs, the first one was a bidoigt to the left and then to the right is a hole in the side of the second insurance, and the outlet on one side, with the plugs higher, but it still won't be easy. The front on top of a crack leads to a 3-a anchor-point of the cross 1 meter right to the prize the best. The passage that follows is the passing with the aid of some cracks on reverse, slightly loose. On top we find a level of grit and a socket, where the assured has 4 of the anchor. This is slightly right, but we'll be back on the ramp and to the left to find an outlet to the sea, followed by a new face with a rock as big as some melons, are embedded. We get a little brâna, and a couple of junipers, we cross out the exit at the ridge. The route goes on the front of the top, next to the pines, to the left of them, out on the ridge close to the summit, where the trail ends. Ensure we're doing it at a tree, in a thick juniper. 30, grade 6b+
