Looking down a route at Nolitudine at Capo Noli
Formally a locals only spot, this area is popular with visiting climbers wanting a bit of seaside climbing on easy to moderately graded routes.
Around a dozen routes in the pleasant 4b to 6b+ range, some multi pitch, on good rock.
A small amphitheatre makes for a nice spot to stay dry above the waves and blue water of the Ligurian Sea.
The larger, sort of flat base area leads to a smaller ledge traversing off to the west where a few more routes can be found.
The small parking lot is immediately after the Capo Noli tunnel exit (on the Noli or east side of the tunnel).
Harness up at the car! Take care to not leave anything of value as this is a popular smash-and-grab spot. Taking a minimal amount of stuff will make the approach and egress easier, plus, not having to worry about leaving a pack (etc) in the car is good piece of mind.
From the tunnel end of the guardrail, rappel 15 meters (mind that one has to more than likely climb this back out) to an exposed trail, which leads to a via ferrata rigged with a fixed rope.
Clip into the rope and traverse down (exposed and somewhat intimidating!) and around to the base of the bulk of the routes in the mini arena.

Nicely situated in the middle of the flat base area, right above the water.Climb up just left of the statue. Large, blocky holds lead up a right-facing corner. When this corner peters out, climb up, then head slightly left picking up another right facing corner.Fun climbing and nice position with a base area that tends to avoid the puddles....[more] Browse More Classics in International
