Pass successively past two dams and you'll reach the base of the Faleza Francezilor sector (10 minutes walk).

Rain: On rainy days the only sector that remains dry is the Surplomba sector. However, this is typically suitable for climbers of french grade 7a and above.

Seasons: Summer is ideal season for climbing here. Nevertheless, you can climb here in optimal conditions spring and autumn as long as the sun is shining. We don't recommend climbing here in winter.
