Pictures list from May 8th, 2004

I was fouled by the small amount of snow in the Iezer range a week before so I thought one can climb one of the gentle trails which reach the Fagaras main ridge from south. Mistake, there was plenty of snow there so I had to come back. Car left at Piscu Negru then walk to Podeanu-Florea saddle ; here the original plan called for the reach of main ridge next to Lespezi Peak but it was changed to a climb on a secondary foot of Podeanu Monutain up to some 2130m where lots of snow started to appear. The descent was again by Saua Podeanu-Florea then unmarked thru the forest towards the Transfagarasan road. I had the luck to find a trail with a forestry or shepherds' marking and the bad luck to exit the mountain on the wrong side of Capra River so I had to cross it (a bit dangerous).
