Caraiman & Costila Peaks Rock Climbing
The Caraiman Peak stands as the second most prominent steep mountain above the Prahova Valley. On top of the peak there is a huge steel cross (Crucea Eroilor Neamului). On the south side is deep valley with the Busteni ski area cable car, and on the north side is a dramatic valley with a ~400 meter high conglomerate massive face. The huge wall is not on Caraiman, but Vârful Coștila, the next mountain to the north. Coștila Peak has a large television tower on it and has numerous couloirs with a vertical drop of 3000+ fet (1000m).
Take the cable car from Busteni, or hike from the valley floor.
