In Italy, there are all types of climbing to be found. The country is full of possible destinations. An abundance of everything from sport climbing to long, alpine routes. In addition to a variety of climbing styles, are the various types of stone. Much of the climbing is on different types of limestone, however, beautiful granite can be found as well. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!
There are a variety of major cities that can be flown into. Just pick the one closest to your selected climbing destination. At times is is better to fly into a nearby country (Austria, Germany) for quicker access to your destination. It also makes sense to check with your car insurance and credit card company regarding coverage of rental cars. Some will not cover cars rented in Italy, but will cover cars rented in other countries and driven in Italy.

VIII- (5.11a/b), but aid may be used to overcome this obstacle to progress (A0,A1). The remaining climbing is still quite stout at UIAA Gr. V...[more] Browse More Classics in International

As many world class routes there are in this country, I am surprised at the lack of action on MP.com for Italy. I suggest we all take a group outing there.

Does anyone have any information on Riva Ridge in Lizzano Italy? It was the sight of the 10th Mountain Division's first combat in WWII and being a former 10th Mountain Soldier I'm trying to make a pilgrimage.
