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.

Location [Suggest Change]

You start at treeline at the little village at the top of the ski area just SE of the city of Petrosani

Protection [Suggest Change]

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.
