Description

Cliffs coming directly out of the Mediterranean Sea. Gorgeous views and beautiful weather (it's blazing hot here in summer). Since the cliffs are typically south-west facing, the time to visit is from around September/October through May/June.

The crags at Muzzerone offer everything from easy slabs to overhanging endurance fests, and with single and multi-pitch routes, there's something here for everyone.

The rock here is mostly limestone. There are varying degrees of polish on the rock. As is typical, crags like Parete centrale which only have a 2 minute approach are quite polished, while others with longer approaches show significantly less polish. It is also of course possible to find routes which feel untouched.

Getting There

Get to La Spezia, Italy. From here, drive south-west and follow the signs for Porto Venere and Le Grazie. Upon reaching Le Grazie, there is a road which goes uphill on the right. At this road there are ambulances parked on the left and a sign at the intersection with a picture of a guy climbing. Take this right uphill. You'll pass a mine on your left and go up some more. Take the road on the left uphill more and continue around until you see another fork. The road on the left goes down a little and this is the one you want to take. This road leads to all of the parking lots for the main sectors of Muzzerone.
