Ski touring on Lespezi peak, Fagaras mountains, Romania

Ok, judging from the first pic of this post, this is a proper winter shredding… but take a look at the other pictures… and this happens in January 12, 2020… this is critical…

Not even in Spring we didn’t catch this conditions here. Don’t look to far, we, ourselves are the cause. But how radical can we become in order to change this… I’m really curious if technology or something else will save this one…ok, lets leave this beside, for now.

This weekend we did the Lespezi descent, a bit too early because of the poor snow and spring conditions.

Lespezi peak is one of the most easy to access 2500m peak in Fagaras mountains, and one that you can ski from the very top.

It’s a nice tour, the pictures from the last part of the climb, and from the peak are just awesome, the descent to. This one calmed my appetite for ski, but not for long. I really hope it’s one of those late winters that shows their strength in march :D, how awesome wold it be!

Until then ride safe!

LESPEZI PEAK SKI TOURING DAY

This one has to be one of the best ski touring days of this season. Second time I have been on Lespezi Peak, both on skis. This beautiful 2.5k peak is also known as Corporate Everest because of the shape and realtivly easy access even in winter conditions, making it pretty crowded…😅❄⛷

Its a nice peak that offers a terrific view over Fagaras mountains range. As you climb you can see the hole south valley of Transfagarasan road with great peaks on each side and when you reach the top you can see Negoiou peak and Caltun lake with the great Caltun wall in all of his steepens…

As descent route you can either go back the way you climb, or get back 100m elevation and then enter the valley beneath the peak, or, if conditions are good, as we catch them, you can enter the valley almost directly from the peak on one of the ridges (almost spines) that forms underneath the peak.

Either way, check the conditions and get all information.

For us, was a great climb, a little windy, and a terrific descent on a sunny afternoon.

For sure we will try it next year too. Cheers and ride safe! Enjoy!
