More info about Rock Climbing in Bucegi Mountains:

Sitting in central Romania, at the very heart of the country, the Bucegi Mountains make up part of the Southern Carpathian Mountains. The mountain range features deeply glaciated valleys and pristine limestone climbing surfaces. The Bucegis have numerous cliff walls ranging from 900 to 1,500 vertical meters (3,000 to 5,000 feet) in height and attract climbers from throughout the country and region. While summer is the most popular time to visit the mountain range, many climbers opt to head to the Bucegis in the winter as well. The area is frequently used by climbers preparing to ascend some of the continent’s highest peaks the following summer. Omu, the highest mountain in the range, is frequented by beginner climbers, since it is not overly technical and mostly requires scrambling. More advanced rock climbers may opt to head to Caraiman (2,384 meters/7,821 feet), the Morar Needles or the Ţigăneşti Towers to test out their climbing skills
