Neamtului: a kind of marathon

Last Saturday, while my friends were skiing in Bucegi or Balea, I did the first big hiking tour of the year, by completely traversing the Neamtului mountains. We've begin walking at late hour, and we kept moving more then 11h, until close to midnight !
The route: Azuga - cable car - Cazacul - Petru Orjogoaia ridge - Neamtului main ridge - the Red Lake - Susai - Predeal If on the southern side part of the mountains is was mainly grass, on the northern parts there were a lot of snow, so our descent was quite difficult and long. In total we did more then 1200m positive level difference and between 30-40 km of walk... Quite a long journey, but very welcomed.
