Lacu Roşu-Gorge of Bicaz has the potential to become one of the most important rock-climbing paradise in Central Europe. The microregion is surely one of the most important rock-climbing terrain in the country. Made up from limestone, developed as a result of erosion and tectonic plates movements, the landscape becoming the perfect rock climbing spots.
The rock-climbing tradition in the area dates back to the beginning of the last century. A few climbers from abroad came to the area who climbed the imposing Altar-stone in the upper section of the gorge. In the next few decades dozens of rock-climbing routes were arranged, and The Gorge served as the venue for several rock climbing competitions. This thriving rock climbing life in the Gorge fell slightly starting from the turn of the century, but is now starting to regain popularity once again, proof of this are the multitude of sport climbing routes (about 100-120) recently arranged in addition to the classic rock-climbing routes.
Most of the climbing routes are classic climbing routes, to access them you have to climb up some potions with the help of ladders. The sport climbing routes are 20-40 m in length, some ranging from lighter (6a) to difficult (8c) variations.
