RACHITELE CUP has come to its 5th Edition. The first contest was organized in 2004 and since then we are trying to raise our standards, based on your observations.
Besides the fact that this year RACHITELE CUP was a stage of the National Championship of Mixt Alpine Climbing, for the first time the competition included amateur climbers.
The event took place at the Valul Miresei Waterfalls (Rachitele village).
Men competitors qualified on the dry tooling track called “Alte Native”. The final 7 qualified raced on “Nirvana”, another difficult climbing track.
The dry tooling track for women, which was initially considered easier, turned out to be quite difficult; therefore, it served for the open-amateurs competition as well.
More than 300 visitors had a pleasant time at the competition site, enjoyed a spectacular show, good weather and lots of adrenaline.
RACHITELE CUP 2008 was organized by OUTDOOR APUSENI Association, together with MARGAU-VLADEASA MOUNTAIN RESCUE SERVICE and the Romanian Federation of Alpine Climbing and Mountaineering (FRAE).
