Moldoveanu Climbing Notes
Matthew Edwards from UNITED KINGDOM writes:
Relatively straightforward scramble from Northern or Southern flanks (via Vistea Mare). Difficult in winter conditions due to risk of avalanche.
<br/>Refuge accommodation below summit at Cabina Podragu from where the summit can be reached in about 3 hours.
<br/>Cabina Podragu is accessible in 8 to 9 hours from Victoria and is manned until November (snow dependent).
<br/>Round trip to Moldoveanu peak is possible in one very long day via the Vistea Mare Valley by parking at the end of the forest trail.
<br/>For round trip from Victoria, via Moldoveanu, and return via Vistea Mare Valley, allow 2 to 3 days.
