Description Suggest change

The Orco Valley beautifully set in the Piemont Region of Italy. Narrow roads and pastoral landscape lead to granite walls fractured by cracks of all sizes and difficulties. Some Italian climbers have nick-named the area "Little Yosemite", complete with the "Caporal" and "Sergent", walls that multi-pitch. This is one of Italy's best traditional rock climbing areas.

Getting There Suggest change

Orco Valley is located about a 2 hour drive from Milan. The town of Cuorgnè is the entrance to the valley. The cliffs are located along either side of the road at various locations.
