Marked at its base with figure 2. The line goes along the right crest of the compact triangle face on the left side of the road as we enter the gorge. The first pitch follows the crest line, being covered with vegetation in its lower part. Belay stance shared with first one from Fisura Verde. The second pitch goes just under the crest line, on the face to your right. The pitons are circled with red paint. After 25m we reach the top. Descent identical with Fisura Verde.

Alpine route with aid-climbing in first pitch. Marked at its base with figure 3. The first pitch of 25m long goes over a line of sharp pockets upwards and to the right. Closely spaced pitons (you guessed, circled with red paint). Good belay stance on the second ledge. The second pitch goes successively over the small ledges which cross the slabby face. Easy to spot the comfortable belay marked with paint. The third pitch continues up the round crest on easy terrain. You reach the third belay stance from Creasta Generalului route. Descent to the right by following the ledge (steel cable in place), or by abseiling. You have the option to continue climbing on Creasta Generalului.

Creasta Generalului route, also known as Santinela Cheii is one of the reference routes in the area. The total time for the entire climb is around 2 to 3 hours. Marked at its base with figure 5. Start the first pitch directly from the river bed and climb the chimney equipped with pitons. First belay stance is on the platform just above. In the second pitch climb the steep face on your left (which is very well bolted) and then free-climb on easy terrain until you reach a comfortable ledge. The third pitch goes over a dihedral with few pitons. Beautiful exit to the ledge above using bridging technique. The fourth pitch starts with face climbing and then follows the ascendant ledge upwards and right. In the fifth pitch climb the inclined chimney. Comfortably belay stance on a big ledge. From here you can descent by following the unmarked path to your left. If you decide to climb the entire route, you still have to climb another five pitches on very easy terrain, but with loose rock until you reach a prominent bulge marked with a cross. Descend on the unmarked path to your left, which zigzags through the forest back to the wall's base.

Known also as Traseul Jgheabului. Very beautiful route, airy in its upper part. To reach the route base, you must cross the river on the small wood bridge just after the entrance in Creasta Generalului route. Walk uphill and to the left until you reach a ledge with a steel cable. Continue on the ledge to the left and you'll see the name of the route painted on the rock.

The route starts just right of the entrance in Alpiniada and ends at the first belay of Moldoveanu. Loose rock in the second half. Take care with the rope drag because the line is sinuous. A 50m long rope will suffice.
