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.
