A hugely popular sport climbing spot, with over a hundred pitches of moderate 'plaisir' (3c-6b) climbing just on the giant granite dome, split by several ledges for easy mixing and matching. The Settore Est has another 40+ climbs, with the truly fun 5c's and some stunning, steep hardcore climbs. 50m ropes sufficient for almost all climbs.
Very easy access from Locarno, 15 min bus or short train ride to the town of Ponte Brolla, then easy walk up to the cliff. Approach to the Settore Est goes pst several magical grottos, the Sunday cave hang-outs for families in the area. Oh, and through some palm tree stands, too. I repeat, palm trees. In Switzerland.

6cMaximum fun. Steep laybacking flake at the right edge of a large corner, for extra exposure. Bonus points for heel-hooks, knee-bars… and thigh-hooks? Top out straight up (does not share an anchor with Gambe Leggere, as SAC guidebook shows)....[more] Browse More Classics in International
