Spectactular gneiss crag rising over the village of Russo. Long routes, with a concentration of hard stuff (7s and 8s) and still enough worthwhile moderates for the whole gang.

60+ routes, 70m rope useful.

Getting There 

Drive from Locarno north and west. About a 40 min drive following a narrow, winding mountain road.

Buses run from Locarno to Russo (in Onsernone), ~ 1 hr ride.
