Description [Suggest Change]
this is the most climbed route of Paragul Mare (Vârful Parângul Mare) It starts at the top of the ski area 5 miles to the Northwest. Climbers follow the ridge, climbing up steep snow on another peak called Cruje, 2 miles NW of Paragul Mare's Summit. This climb has avalanche hazard and some beginners may want to rope up for this face. After climbing Cruje you drop down to a notch and slowly ascent a windblown ridge. The ridge top is sharp and drops off to the north. There is an easy snow climb up to the summit of Parangul Mare.

If you choose to rope up on the lesser peak section you could use stakes if you want, but most climbers will not choose this.
