Access Issue: It's on the beach, one of the rocks by the sea Details

Description

One side is sunny and the other one is in the shade in the morning - I believe they might have been bolted by the local canyoneering group called "Demi Aspromonte".

All routes have between 3-6 bolts anchors included. They're pretty rusty but the anchors at the top were OK on Sep 2017.

You can walk to the top of the rock from the back and reach two anchors. The others need to be climbed sport.

I've climbed two routes sport, and the rusty bolts were holding my weight. I didn't dare to try falling on them :)

Since I don't live in the area anymore, we bought some quickdraws and a 25m rope at the local store (Decathlon) in Gioia Tauro. Otherwise, it's pretty hard to get any gear in the nearby.

There are some bolts also in the back but this is reachable only via the sea. My guess is that the hardest route (the one on the furthest right but on the beach) is a 5.9,
there is a 5.8+ in the middle and a 5.8 on the left. I haven't tried the one in the back (by the sea).

Getting There

You need to reach the beach in the area of the city of Palmi. The rock is called "Scogliazzo" in the local dialect and sits just to the left of the touristic local port.
