The information shown on the map and the table above has been extracted from the rock climbing guidebook for Brasov, which is available to buy from our shop.  The French grading system has been used throughout in the above table.

Brasov has witnessed a rapid development in recent years that has seen many new climbing areas opened and the majority of old ones have been re-equipped with new bolts.  The rock climbing at Brasov has a good mixture of single and multi-pitch routes across all grades.  Some of the best multi-pitch routes are at Cheile Rasnoavei (up to 10 pitches long), and Costila, which is shown opposite. The big wall in the photograph has routes that are between 3 and 5 pitches long.

The best time to go rock climbing around Brasov is from May to September, though it is best to avoid June, as this is the wettest month.

Brasov does not have an international airport, so it is best to fly into either Bucharest or Sibiu airports and then hire a car.  Alternatively Brasov is well connected by train from many major European cities.  With regards to accommodation there are plenty of guesthouses, hotels or hostels in Brasov.
