We started this hike from the city of Borsa, situated in the north of Romania, in the region called Maramures. In our first day we manage to arrive at the meteo station "Iezer" at 1600m (we needed for this climb 3 hours and 30 min)., where we slept during the night, and the next day we climbed to the peak Pietrosul (2303m). For the initial climb is needed of some climbing equipment (ropes, etc.).  The descent was prety difficult, because the risc of avalanches, the frozen snow, and a steep portion of wall. The descent from peak Pietrosul to the meteo station Iezer took place in 2 hours and 30 min.  And from the meteo station, down to the place we could left our car another 1 hour and 30 min.
In the winter it is impossible to reach the meteo station with a vehicle, but during the summer this can be done with a good 4x4 car.
That is all, perhaps the images tell more about the hike.
Good wishes to everyone, and take care.

Multumim. Chiar am avut noroc de vreme frumoasa. Insa cred ca e cam periculos de acu incolo in zonele alea pt ca e risc crescut de avalansa.
Si sincer, nu ma asteptam ca Muntii Rodnei sa fie atat de frumosi.

Salut Sergiu,
Ai o colectie excelenta de imagini din masivul Pietrosul_Rodnei, mai ales ca e facuta iarna in conditii grele dar cu o vreme splendida.In curand voi posta si eu alaturi in zona, un mic traseu pe care l-am facut de curand la Cascada Cailor si Lacul Izvorul Bistritei.La varsta noastra de 50 de ani e mai greu sa urcam tocmai pe creasta de aceea va invidiez si bine faceti ca va distrati in acest mod!
