The Settore Est has another 40+ climbs, with the truly fun 5c's and some stunning, steep hardcore climbs in the 7's and 8's. 60m ropes sufficient for almost all climbs.
Topo from an old SAC pdf, via chmoser.ch, or in Plaisir Sud, Extrem Sud, or the SAC guidebook to Ticino.
Approach to the Settore Est starts in the entrance to Grotto America, but go up the stone stairs to the left and past 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.
If you drive, there are two main parking areas:
1) across the street (opposite the cliffs) of the train tracks, near the road crossing
2) big gravel lot near Grotto America (which also has a water fountain)
