Description

A unique crag characterized by an enormous cave (Bus del Quai). It’s located on the right side of “Punto dell’Orto” mountain in Covelo locality at the junction for the tangenziale (bypass) for Brescia. The lower section is composed of a low wall of limestone blocks where unstable parts have been removed (difficulty 5c-6b).
The upper part instead consists of an enormous cave (grottone) with Routes of remarkable difficulty (up to 8b).

Getting There

Brescia-Darfo PR 510, Iseo exit, drive down to the lake (remarkable panorama) and once you reach the intersection with the coastal road, you can spot the cave the to the right of the Covelo roundabout, looking up. Park under the cliff right at the end of the roundabout. The lower sector is just steps away. To go to the upper sector you can either climb a via Ferrata that starts from the lower sector (fun!) or continue the path uphill after the lower sector (upper sector="palestra alta"). There is a map with routes name, grades and topo at in the parking lot. Take a picture with your camera. Each route’s name is written (sometimes hard to read) at its base.
