Route description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

The name of the route comes to the little stone tower that appears in the upper portion. The route Turnule?ului from Padina Popii presents obstacles very varied; sometimes climbing must be done with traction and stirrups, sometimes only free, on the chimneys or the edges with the sockets fine, where the balance plays a decisive role.

The first length. Inside the small breaking of the wall turn to the right, climbing freely up to the first pitons. From here climb a passage easy overhangt, using footrests and the traction rope double. After about 15 km, the obstacle loses its hardness, continuing with a crack open, punctuated by pitons, up to the base of a chimney, where we regroup.

The obstacle of the second length of chord is the chimney mentioned. His opening does not allow ramonajul, being very large. Therefore, the submission of a perform climbing to the grip on the front of our left. The passage ends after 25 m and is continuous with a front grassy up to the full deployment of the 40 m of rope.

Submitting uninsured, we reach after 18 km at the base of the ridge, seen from the bottom of the path, has the form of an isolated tower (hence the trail name). Following the line of the watershed of the latter, which forms a bottleneck, deploy the rope twice (third and fourth length of the chord) goes on the Edge of the Padinei the Bucket.
