In den rumänischen Karpaten: Die Besteigung des Moldoveanu von der Podragu-Hütte aus.
Der Moldoveanu mit Iulian Cozma in zwei Tagen (September 2009)
Für Westler liegt Rumänien etwas ‘grau’ im Osten, das trägt – wie bei jeder ernsteren Bergtour – zur Spannung bei, wird alles klappen oder bleibt der Gipfel fern? Weil Iulian englisch spricht, seine Frau und Mitarbeiterin Rosana deutsch, werden alle Unklarheiten schon in der Vorbereitung per Email bedacht. Dieser prima Service bleibt während de… (>>>)

below you may see some photos from my last tour from 2009 season. It was October, and the snow came to early in most of the areas of Romania, so the initial plan was changed few times. But as you may see, the tour was a successful one!
