Description

From the cliff on the side of the road just after you have passed "Hotel Roman", take the path to the left that goes to "Grota Haiducilor" (2 min.) and then further to "Grota cu Aburi" (The Steam Cave). Just behind "Hotel Roman" you will see a small boulder with a blue triangle painted on it. Turn to the right after the boulder and take the faint path that goes straight up on the mountainside. The "Scorpioni" sector is divided into two cliffs, one lower to the left of the path and one a little bit higher on the right side of the path. On the cliff on the left side there are only two routes (Knock me down and Always Ultra), all other routes are on the cliff on the right side. You will walk —2 min. from one cliff to another.
