Bobot

All you need to know…

Info The routes were bolted in 2008 and 2009 for the Herculane Climbing Open (HCO) competition.
Access Follow the road (DN67D) that connects Baile Herculane town with “Baia de Arama”, through the Cerna Valley. At the milestone that shows “25 km to Baile Herculane”(it is on the backside of the milestone when you com from Herculane) the road splits. The dirt road to the left follows the Cerna river and passes “Cheile Bobot”(Bobot Gorges) towards Cerna Sat (Cerna Village). The asphalt road to the right goes over the gorges, crosses a bridge, and continues towards “Baia de Arama”.

The Bobot climbing area is divided into 3 sub-areas: 1. The area in the gorges with cliffs at the roadside and a cliff across the Cerna river 2. The area after the bridge on the road to “Baia de Arama” called “Faleza Animaleleor” (Animal Cliff) 3. The area above the water-spring – Faleza Marina (marine cliff). For the two sectors in the gorges, you can park at the base of the routes. For the other 2 sectors, park in the parking place after the bridge. To reach Faleza Animalelor from the parking, go back to the bridge (do not cross it), and take the path that goes straight up crossing the meadow on the right side. To reach “Faleza Marina” from the parking, go back to the bridge, cross it, and take the path on the left side at the end of the bridge. The path goes up and to the right, crosses a field of boulders, and reaches the sector after 10-15 min.

Approach Walk-time 10-15 min.
