Main Rodnei ridge, from the east  Sucess!

We started the first day on the ridge at Ineu in the morning, reaching Gargalau in gloomy conditions of stormy clouds coming from the west around 6.30 pm, so we were descending quite quickly towards Saua Gargalau where we planned to camp. The peak's location and its prominence makes it absolutely fantastic mountain panorama point, great views towards both parts of Rodnei ridge.

En route to Omului peak (headed towards Coronghis peak but turned back from Omului to save energy for the next days ridge ride)

Route: from Borsa Complex  Sucess!

Ascended via Cascada Cailor and the ridge of Muntele Cailor. Above Poiana Ştiol there was 0,5-1 m of weak snow, which made the climb quite tiring. Descend was much quicker, as a thunderstorm approached.

Route Climbed: from Pasul Rotunda by main ridge Date Climbed: august 1998  Sucess!

Gargalau is not an easy name, so we changed it to "Gargamel". Yes, if you associate this one with blue Smurffs, it is a good idea :)) Besides very nice view from a top
