From the Costila refuge you go back down the trail and turn right on the firs gully.The route is the first one as you go up the gully on the south wallof the Little Tower(Tancul Mic). The route follows a crack on south, east and north sides of the tower.After the first pitch after about 30ft yo have to start traversing to the right.The old pitons will help you stay on route. To reach the top of the tower you have to scramble up some chossy rock and vegetation

Descent Options:

4 out of 5 stars Conglomerate trad

This was the first serious trad route that I did on conglomerate.It was fun and the rock was quite solid compared with my expectations.It was easy enough not to get scared to death but hard enough to be interesting.
