Via ferrata Casa Zmeului (The Oger house) is a hard route but beautiful route that will challenge anyone who tries it. This route I would NOT recommend for beginners as it has overhangs that will put pressure on the individual both physically and mentally.
The route starts by accessing the village "Vadu Crisului". You would need to go in the direction of the "Casa Zmeului" mark in google maps. If you come by car the road doesn't stop where google map has it ended, you will be able to drive a bit more until a improvised parking next to the rail road and a bridge. From here the route begins.
To access the ferrata you will need to walk right besides the rail road (CAUTION: trains are passing on this quite alot) for about 5 min. You will see a sign on the left with "Pestera Casa Zmeului". Take a left on a narrow trail that will go down for about 1 min and you will reach the start of the route.
From here the ferrata begins and usually takes about 1:30 min depending on the size of the group and experience. The ferrata is demanding physically but all the effort is worth it.
Once up, you will immediately find the route down as it is marked. The route will go to the left. The retreat will take about 20 min.
Total time: 2:00 h aprox.
