Essential summit info
Target summit: 8 pointer YO/EC-460 "Poreica" - www.sota.org.uk/Summit/YO/EC-460
Our Route: In Moldova Sulita there's a dirt road on the right, immediately after the main intersection and past the church (road 87). After a couple of kilometers on this dirt road we parked the car (there's not much room for parking or maneuvering) and started moving on foot through a series of gates. On the lower parts the trail goes on some private properties, but the people don't mind.

GSM coverage: So and so.
Summit conditions: Mixed, both open and forested.
Other info: One of the easier 8 pointers from Suceava. Has some medium steep climbs.
Poreica has some medium steep climbs, but it seemed quite easy to get to the top. In the lower parts the path goes through several private properties, but that's pretty standard in these parts. The people don't mind you trampling around their front yards. And in contrast to most communities, these people keep to themselves.
Hi, we're a team of hams from Romania. We're into SOTA and other activities. Thanks for stopping by!
