Hiking trails from Zarnesti
PHASE I: THE NORTH-SOUTH 3-3.30 h
northern ridge: cottage Curmatura – Saddle crack – top of tower – Saddle Padina closed – Padina top Kings – the refuge of the sharp point
Ridge trail, marked with red dot, starts at Curmatura cottage. Initially, when we leave the hut, we are off to the left to Zarnesti and after about 10 m in this direction we get to the point of branching roads. On a pillar marking the board signs reading, among others, and explanations on our way. As mentioned we are off the board from left to climb by clearing a short distance after the cabin and entered the forest of spruce, overflowing the ridge of the mountain on the southern coast of Little Rock. Climbing the steep slope by the subsides that cross the forest, passing beside the white limestone walls, lift the edge of the trail. After about 20 minutes, counted from the chalet Curmatura, get the saddle crack, where two of the markers of interest are common in this place until our route, split: the path marked with yellow tape, leads Zarnesti, and the blue point to Little Rock. Place indicator is signaled by a pillar. The indicator of lighting right down to the left, bypassing the corner of Forest Curmatura, wooded stone tower, built in the middle of inseuarii National Park and Little Rock. At the end of this passage indicator met a pillar, on whose arrow read the following explanation: direct access to the cabin without touching Curmatura crack Saddle – 10 minutes. Above indicator of lighting on the ridge, was the lowest point to the altitude of Curmaturii Stone Park. On its axis of symmetry, to the south, Curmaturii valley, the thalweg of vilcel century deepens and the tongue valley north crack, bounded along their length Mica Stone National Park. Add as crack is in the saddle across Curmaturii ridge on Little Stone Mountain slope properly. Continuing the route, follow the trail through the forest, supported ascending sometimes toppled by the wind through spruce logs. After a short time, overcome by a ridge line to, where you descend, crossing the steep mountain to a vast area of debris, poured right into the valley to crack. rises before us – provoking the admiration of us – white stone wall that has crossed many times gutters. Here and there appear solitary or grouped a few spruces, stunted and scratched winds. Rock Climbing Mountains to the northern ridge of starts after I crossed the debris. A threshold rocks, 4-5 m high, subject us to the first exam climbing. Shifting it well, we still use the two cables installed along the route. Follows a small trough with debris that must be passed a short distance more carefully. As we grow, the slope becomes more inclined. However, the passages are not difficult to be passed, because we use natural outlets for support and two other cables installed in exposed locations. Our submission is relieved by the marking, which sometimes shows the supports for the hands. After about an hour from the chalet Curmatura, you reach a metal pillar, an arrow indicator fixed on him, gives the following explanation: to the cabin Curmatura 45 minutes – 1 hour. right pillars on a slab, we see blue cross marking the route from Boundary Padina, who finally in this place, at 1850 m altitude. still, the crest starts to emerge better and better, climb, held in gentle slopes, passing over small obstacles until the tower, the first peak of the ridge in this part, where indicators are set on a pillar and a plate with two arrows explanations about the routes that branch off from the crest to different objectives, and times of travel. The top of Tower Stone Tower is called local, and tourists often call it the Stone Tower Park. From the top of the tower is separated by Padina Sindileriei right path, which is very poorly marked beginning coboririi. Led by marking our resume on the ridge road on the right set of towers, and grows everywhere in Padina Sindileriei high. But soon you will have to give up the pleasure and because of obstacles to the left to leave the ridge line on the eastern slope, rounding the top dark Padina through a wooded area. At the end of the range come in Padina closed Saddle (1955 m alt.) Bounded on the south and the northern tip of Priest Padina Padina top closed. The place is marked by pillars and tin signs. By this point the trail passes the blue band, followed by the right, leading the former clearing Diana refuge on Brina Goat, and the left down to the cabin Curmatura. Continue on the ridge line to the right look haurile Padina closed private note wonders for us on rebuilt high limestone layers up to vertical. After 15 minutes we reach the top of Padina Kings (1970 m alt.) Branch point highlighted by a metal pillar. The trail is marked with blue triangles and descent leads to the right by Kings Padina in clearing the former Diana refuge. Padina Kings on top line growth is seen in front of us, the narrow and dotted with juniper trees pilcuri. In this part we can admire the right Padina Kings, bordered to the north-east of Kings Ridge Padina; on its slope, called the Great Wall of Padina Kings were established many routes of rare alpine beauty. After about 400 meters, counting from the right branch last point, the ridge close to many VILCELE lineage, Cioringa tributaries of the Great Valley. Down through this area passes Cioringa Great belt, lower branch. Hatasul along the belt is hard to follow, especially the forest of juniper trees that are sometimes lost. After about an hour, counting from the top of Kings Padina, becomes broad ridge, the trail passing over sharp point (2150 m) beneath the valley to the right that emerges Cioringa Great, whose bed is shaped grassy path to the unmarked Cioringa Great belt , upper arm, and shelter Cioringa Great. Beyond the top, down the platform refuge from sharp point. At about 30 m below the arrows unite several explanations for the ridge trail to the cabin and Descent Padinile Curmatura the Arts. finally take place in this first stage of the route
PHASE II: NORTH-SOUTH 2-3 h
Ridge Nordic Area refuge from sharp point-tip Timbalul Mare – Peak Baciului (tip to Om) – Saddle Grindului
The second phase of the ridge route runs south of the refuge from sharp point. the point of departure are fixed on metal poles several arrows of direction, with explanations for obiectivcle or marked tourist routes in the region. From pillar indicating the path of the Peak Ridge Baciului leads north to 350 m higher than the ridge line, up near the tip Timbalul Great, erected in front. before starting to climb the peak, ridge is interrupted twice, forming a Strunga read in small intervals. The right of the second marking down 4-5 m to the east, a trough in May injured his back and then another Strunga (third), where the slope begins northwest thread Cioringa lineage of Grand Canyon through which tourists used to climb the rock climbers and descend to the refuge Cioringa Mare, located near the former Hidden Cottage, Vilcelului route with window. The place can be identified and after, window drilled in the wall that borders the natural right of the canyon mentioned thread lineage. Cioringa refuges near former Great Hidden Cottage, Vilcelului route with window, see index 25. B. Continuing route crest, we climb on top sustained Timbalul Mare (2177 m alt.), where we can look at the fantastic area of the ridge’s Calinet Padina, “climbing paradise” from rival Bucegi Galbinele area. Beyond this area, deeper than the tongue of wooded knolls Dimbovifa, we see massive Iezer doll and to the right of the seemingly endless string of peaks of the Fagaras mountains. Follow the Saddle Calinetului Descent, deep sea between the tip and the top of Timbalul cymbals. in its content, the presence of coltan , the saddle shows a bump which splits into two. the first port from the north end of the routes climbers come from Calinetul Breakfast, in the second, from the south, reaching those who have climbed the main thread of Padina Calinet . resume ridge trail, climbing up at the tip of Timbal (2170 m altitude).. Looking back, we see the wall and top ridge Timbalul Great, rebuilt the vertical strata, reminding us of the Great Organ of Padina closed. right We, on the northwestern slope, deepens Valley Bridge. With numerous tanks and image edges, high in its content, before the crest south of the Northern wilderness impressed by the land and the narrowness ridge where we are. Get on a slope the other, overcome irregularities in a crossing route that culminates in the descent on the western slope, until Valley Saddle Bridge. Follows overcome the most difficult portions of the route, about 100 m. long mark over the battlements leads or places exposed ridge, passing usually on the eastern slope. Strunga a small, quiet down places, the trail passes below the eastern slope, ascending through the juniper pilcurile or climb over the small jumping. interval to finally take a narrow passage on the ridge line, dotted finally the top Timbalul Mic (2231 m altitude).. in this area take on the alpine trail end Timbalul edge lower and further back in the saddle Valley Bridge, the route from the main thread of the valley with the same name. From the top Timbalul Breakfast can look to the left of the wild eastern slope, and above this, Bran villages, spread everywhere over Maguri Bran. Beyond the horizon is closed them from right to left by massive Leaota Bucegi, Piatra Mare and bent Postavaru . resuming sustained way down the ridge, having the right threads Cioringutei lineage. When I got down in her dotted with junipers, we are in the southern starting point of haystacks, rocky peaks that are chained up near the Peak Baciului . From this place, on the western slope of the deep threads Vladusca lineage. After about 9:00 p.m. brutes reach the top (2220 m altitude).. still come a little more uneven portion of the ridge, followed by top Claia uptakes Bypass (2202 m alt.) supported the right of the ridge Coltilor Rai. The climb along the ridge next to it, which became wider and slightly grassy, passing over the boiler bypassed, or until the top of The Peak Baciului Man (2238 m) . To the south fork to the left peak, the descent, the route 1. A (marked with red) to grind refuge. Below this point, the ridge line, about 350 m, we arrive at the metal pillar Saddle Grind, southern limit of the Northern Ridge, where the second stage of the ridge end of the road.
PHASE III: NORTH-SOUTH 3-4 h
Southern Ridge: Saddle Grind – Long Mane – Saddle Bottoms
To more precisely delineate the northern ridge of the southern ridge ridge we chose the lowest point of the landmark Peak Baciului and top grind, which I called Saddle Grindului. A pillar of the mark, had in this place, into the path of descent to the cabin Plaiul Road on “The Chain”, serves as a marker for identification. The Saddle Grind, led by red point mark, climbing to the top of the ridge Southern Grind (2210 m alt.), Which come soon. continue to cross the most difficult portion of the ridge route, along a narrow winding corners. the left, on the eastern slope, the deeply Hornurile Beam, whose thalweg full of debris formed in the valley downstream key lineage as grind. right on the western slope, we increase the clutter of towers and shoulders characterize zone called Rock Park. The range has finally subsided in one place, where we start to climb over obstacles that precede long mane, the most impressive piece of ridge in the whole mountain. Taken together, it looks like a roof similar to that of the great peaks of the Fagaras Vista-Moldoveanu. quite long and narrow, ridge leaves left and especially right a very steep wall. South of the mane long, the trail takes us above the high walls of the western slope, where climbers have found a vast area for this sport of courage and will. This in turn overcome: Wall of Padina Lancii, Glade closed Grohotis Great Wall, bounded to the south edge of Red Piscului wall Cold wall Piscului the Trees, the porch wall, edge of Ivan and Ivan’s Valley, which closes the area investigated The climbers on the western slopes of Stone Park. The right of the valley, ridge loses height. Interrupted by numerous peaks lathe saddles or narrow to go around the eastern slope, had led to the marker on a path located at about 40-50 m below the crest. Sometimes this slope crossed from large areas covered with juniper trees and dotted with smirdar, which bloom period (May-June) becomes red mountain with its flowers and inmiresmeaza atmosphere. Most importantly, the last peak is Virful Southern Stone Ridge (2086 m alt.), We reach after about 3 hours, counted from the Saddle Grindului. The Descent of him still having a difficult passage to the end after about 15 meters further, the trail closer to the ridge line. look ahead, covered with forest, mountain pebble, extending south and Stone Park. After a succession of three towers, which exceed our climb, passing through the saddles to separate them, get in the lineage of the Valley of nettles, deep right, to the west. they take shape along the path marked with blue triangle route 9. C. branch point is indicated by a pillar indicator. The last obstacles to climb in Saddle Bottoms, held over a distance of about 350 m, is in the form of coltan or grassed easy steps. We came upon them in the right perspective on a beautiful carved valleys in the west wall of the Rock Mountains and Pietricicai, outlined by the thicket of juniper forest seninari raised on limestone. Description of phase III of the route in Saddle Ridge has finally bottoms and red point mark, still very rarely leads to the left (eastward), the descent, alternating with blue triangles mark the bottoms up to the sheepfold, where he Finally.
