Highlights: Cheile Rasnoavei is about 10km far from Rasnov town, on the West of the Postavaru Massif. The landscape is very attractive and lots of tourists visit the area especially during summer. You can camp in a tent or stay overnight at one of the many chalets in the area. There is a spring on the left side of the river at the base of Creasta Generalului route for drinking water. Besides climbing, you can bungee-jump from one of the highest bungee-jumping facilities in Eastern Europe, or you can enjoy the Tyrolean traverse which stretches between the walls on either side of the gorge.

Climbing: The routes have a character in-between sport and alpine climbing. Most climbs are multi-pitched. We recommend you to wear a helmet as many routes have loose rock. The rock is limestone, featuring face climbing, cracks and overhangs.

Getting here: Start driving from Brasov on the national road DN73 in the direction of Pitesti. Head towards Rasnov and cross straight through the town. Several hundred meters after you exit Rasnov, continue on the secondary road DN73A towards Bucharest via Paraul Rece. After several kilometres, you will see the sign to the Cheile Rasnoavei. Take this country road (marked with red triangle) until you reach a barrier. Take care because thiscountry road has side-roads, but you must stay on the main road. Before the barrier there is a small parking place where you park the car (45 minutes drive). Continue by foot on the country road that leads you into Cheile Rasnoavei (10 minutes walk).

Bolting: Mostly on pitons. In the alpine routes some sections are equipped with expansion bolts. Sport climbing routes are equipped with expansion bolts.

Sun: Due to the landscape character you can find routes exposed to the sun or in the shade. Some of the sports climbing routes are sheltered by the trees, so you can climb in the shade even in hot summer days.

Rain: On rainy days, the walls get easily wet, hindering any climbing. After long periods of rain you may find water infiltrations.

Seasons: Summer and autumn are the ideal seasons to climb here. Early in the spring there might be water infiltrations. We don't recommend climbing here in winter.
