Description

The Finale 007 sums this crag up nicely, "...a cocktail of splendid rock, a beautiful environment, sun, tranquility, a great variety of styles and some historic routes. It is one of the nicest areas of the Finalese if not the nicest one."

Hard to beat the location, and, the approach drive is sublime, passing the oft photographed Chiesa dei Cinque Campanili (church of the 5 bells).

Located on the hill between Rocca di Perti to the west, and Monte Cucco to the east, in the Valle Urta. This area is somewhat more sheltered from wind and can be a good option on poor/cold weather days, with the La Specchio sector offering some terrain sheltered from rain. This area sees plenty of sun, especially in the afternoon, when even in spring and fall it can feel quite warm (or downright hot).

The Deaf Mountain is broken up into five sectors:

• Falesia delle Tecchie
• Alveare e Placca di Mu (beehive and mu slabs)
• Settore Centrale (Central Sector)
• La Specchio (the mirror)
• Coralli (the corals)

Around 105 routes, the bulk of which are in the 6 range with a decent pile in the 5 and 7 grades and only a mild sprinkling of 4 and 8’s. The individual sectors are signed at each crag, and, many of the route names can be found unobtrusively written at the base.

The area is also very popular with mountain biking and hiking.

Getting There

From Finalborgo, take the road up to Perti, follow the road as it winds around to the left, and follow this skinny paved road to where it ends at a large parking lot with a couple of gates blocking vehicle access at several dirt road options.

Back down from the end of the road, under the central sector, there’s another lot which has a bit closer access to that sector, as well La Specchio and Coralli.
