In any case, it was clear to me that if I wanted to run I had to look for cooler temperatures high on the mountains and also to start early and keep the uphill in the shade. So I was very happy when my colleague Vlad said that he was going to join me on the mountain run I proposed.
We started early and by mid-day we completed our sky running tour. Almost half of the rpute was above 2000m altitude and we touched all three of the major north side peaks of Bucegi Mountain: Bucsoiu (2492m), Omu(2505m), Scara(2422m).
It was warm also high on the mountain, but the strong wind kept us cool and our T-shirts dry!
Here is the movie of the run:
