the steeps of Zarnestilor is an impressive 6 km long gorge located in the north-eastern Piatra Craiului Massif. The access is from the towns Zarnesti and Piatra. Near the gorge there is the cabin Curmatura, an important starting point shift in Stone Park. In addition, the walls bordering the valley have a height ranging between 100 m and 200 m. The trail through the wilderness displays an impressive landscape and spectacular rock walls where climbers have opened many alpine trails. Those who come here will be impressed by the sights of the gorge caves (the Big Cave from the Precipice, the Small cave from the Precipice) and several springs, among which there are the Botorog Fountain and Gentlemen Fountains.
The gorges are impressive limestone walls bordered by predominantly vertical climbing faces.
The equipment routes vary, mainly due to spread sectors and the successive stages of planning or redevelopment. The classic routes are on pitons and the climbing ones are on needle files (new or old). The charts are also very heterogeneous: pitons and expansion bolts, some consolidated, some not.
The gorges provide shaded areas throughout the day.
During rainy days, you can practice climbing in the Refuge sector, which is sheltered by a huge overhanging wall. After long periods of rain, we recommend you to wait until the infiltrations retire on certain routes (particularly in the Arch sector).
You can practice climbing here from early spring to late autumn and you can find sunny or in the shady routes. We do not recommend climbing in winter due to seepage.
