All you need to know…

Info The sector has two main walls: a wall parallel to the valley – Soimului Wall (falcon wall), and to the right (as viewed from the road) an amphitheater-like wall, hence the name of the sector.
This is one of the oldest sectors in Herculane, and climbing started here in the 60’s. The routes are old, secured with old pitons and homemade anchors. A few routes were re-bolted and are safe to climb.
For the decent, down-climb Valcelul Junglei (Jungle Dale), which starts between the 2 main walls and is secured by cables.
Access Take the road that goes around the town and leave the car above the Minerva Hotel, near the tight bend sign.
Approach Start at the StreetView point and walk uphill for about 30 min.
