"Starting from the A.N.E.F.S. we followed the contour passed, under Parangul Mic peak until I arrived in Parang Mountains ridge, stopping us in the alpine refuge Carja to sleep in a tent. The next day we climbed on Carja peak and continued a very thick fog up on Parangu Mare peak. From the peak we descended the Gruiu saddle and the Rosiile bucket, to the Agatat refuge. This route has been designed to prepare us to ascent Mont Blanc peak." - Parângu Mare, CODmunte, Apr 29, 2007
"Starting from the cottage Gentiana and following the Pietrele valley we arrived at the Pietrele lake. From here I went up in the Stanisoara valley where we climbed to the Retezatului saddle and from here after a while we got on top." - Retezat, CODmunte, Sep 20, 2003

"Is the highest mountain peak in western Romania, had to run on this pitch. Although I wanted to reach 1 December - Romanian National Day, we decided to get on top early, to avoid the deep snow we get. I really enjoyed the first snow, the entire ridge Parang mountains, starting near the I.E.F.S. Parang. Unfortunately, poor weather with fog and strong wind, did not seem to enjoy us being on the mountain." - Parângu Mare, CODmunte, Nov 22, 2002
