About Mountaineering and Climbing

RoClimbs contains information about rock climbing, ice climbing, dry tooling, sport climbing, trad climbing and alpine climbing. Rock climbing, in all its forms, is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injury or death. Visitors using any information directly or indirectly available on this site do so at their own risk.

By using RoClimbs you acknowledge that rock climbing is dangerous and the fact that the available information may be incomplete or wrong.

RoClimbs is not responsible for checking or validating information from books, magazines, blogs/sites or other sources printed/online or posted by users.

There may be errors (printing/typing, description, topo) so that the information on the site may be wrong. Examples of mistakes (enumeration not exhaustive):

  • real grades can be easier or harder then they are quoted on the website
  • climb length and number of pitches may differ
  • fixed gear may be missing (pulled off accidentally by other climbers or fell down in time)
  • there can be routes with no pitons and pegs (pulled off on purpose by other climbers) and not announced as so
  • if a climber felt a route as having good protection, this does not mean that the pitons can hold a fall. Rock is changing in time. A safe route at a certain time, can become a route with a serious potential for accidents or death in six months time.

It is recommended that you search information from multiple sources [the authors of the route (if they're still alive), books, magazines, blogs, local climbers, climbing groups on social sites, clubs, Romanian Salvamont Team] on the status of the route before you climb it.

The route difficulty as well as protection quality or rock quality are subjective to each individual climber, depending on his experience, training, the level at which he climbs and his confidence / psyche. Ideally, every climber should use his own judgment in choosing fixed protections and using mobile protections (where possible) and abseiling down if he finds that the route is beyond his or her powers or becomes too dangerous.


Use RoClimbs fully aware of the risks. RoClimbs Team is not responsible for any accidents, from minor to serious ones or for those leading to the death of the climber. Annually 1-2 people die in alpine routes or climbing in Romania. It is important to know when to back off and be ready for it.

Last routes climbed in Romania

Lupul cel Rău 5B, 6+ A0 (7-)

Lupul cel rău (the Bad Wolf) is the longest and most popular route in Peretele Animalelor (the Wall of Animals). A series of dihedrals and beautiful obstacles, not very difficult and well protected.
    Teofil Vlad, Maria Roventa, Andreea Soare - 11.11.2018

Fisura Policandrului 5B, 6 A1 (7+/8-)

Follows a natural line, mainly on cracks, having a small roof on the middle of the route. Unfortunately the fixed protection is old and not always trustworthy.
