The NW corner on Torre Barancio is obvious in this...


At 2308m, Torre Barancio is a relatively small tower north of Torre Grande. However, this does not detract from the fun climbing and the grand view from the small grass-covered summit. Two classic lines, both rated IV (~5.6), ascend the northern side of the tower: The North Face and the aesthetic Northwest Corner.

Getting There 

From the Rif. Scoiattoli, hike five minutes down to the Torre Grande. Take a low trail down and around (west) of the Torre Grande and the smaller formation west of Torre Grande. Head back east towards the Torre Barancio. The NW Corner will be obvious.

While the name of the route implies you'll climb the corner, you really climb the face to the right of the corner with the occasional stem out to the left face. Pitch 1 and 2 (55m): With a sixty meter rope, P1 and P2 can be combined easily. From the base of the corner, climb easy ground up to decent ledge and small roof above. Clip a piton and pull the awkward roof (crux) to clip another piton and a few bolts to the first belay (fixed gear). Continue up the fun and easy (but pretty polished...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
