First target of the day is the closer summit, YO/EC-085, Fața lui Gherghel (the Face of Gregory) which is to the left of the road, rising above it with about 200m as a steep wall, and with some rock formations probably giving it's name:
|The Face of Gregory|
After this QSO which already made my day, I started a more usual SOTA pileup of European stations, and I just stopped (about an hour and half later) when there were no more takers and was already time to catch the next summit as well.
Descending was much harder, as we wanted to shortcut a bit and got towards the cliffs, but it was still manageable. Although a bit more than usual care was necessary as we stumbled upon a very angry adder taking a sunbath on one of the rocks.
Back to the road, it continues again somewhat upwards finally leading to a very large and boring plateau:
Even some bugs were curious of it, or maybe just enjoyed a rock painted in yellow:
|Anybody any idea what this is?|
Overall 67 QSOs, with 3 s2s and the best DX to day, very fruitful day I say.
