Furcile -an epic route. Winter climbing in Bucegi Mountains.

7 Comments

Furcile (4A, 6-, 5+ A0) is the first “vertical” climbing route opened in Romania, Bucegi Mountains in the N face of Galbenele Wall (250 m height).  It was first climbed in October 1935 by 3 pioneers of our alpinism: Niculae Baticu, Ion Trandafir and Dan Popescu with only 7 pegs !  See the topo here . -credits Radu Diaconescu

Together with Silvia Murgescu, we have really enjoyed climbing this epic route on 19 March 2011. On the last 2 pitches we encountered really winter conditions.

See some photos from our climb below:

    Eu n-am avut entuziasmari – precum multi cogeneri – la citirea unor carti romanesti despre Himalaya si alti munti mari de tot.
    Dar am 1-2 carti de suflet, dupa cum filmul si pozele voastre din Furci ma transporta intr-o lume speciala, care ma misca aparte (uite ca nu gasesc cuvinte!).
    Un vis frumos – pentru mine cel care nu a fost pe acolo…
