This time as part of a circle-trip (Gentiana hut - Peleaga - Papusa - Portile Inchise - Valea Rea - Gentiana). By the time we reache Papusa, the weather turned to sunny, a nice welcome gesture from the mountain. If you continue your way towards Portile Inchise, be aware that the old steel cable in the sharp NE saddle of Papusa is partially damaged and might hurt your hand. I rather recommend using the rock for climbing down at this passage.
We were going for the circuit: Peleaga, Papusa, Portile Inchise, Lake Galesu, Valea Rea and again Peleaga then descending to the Bucura lake at the camp.
Coming from Portile Inchise. Descended the whole south ridge to Poiana Pelegii.
Ohhh many time ago with such a bad weather i dont seen anything :))
