Description

For most folks, Col de Bavella and the surrounding environs are the crown jewel of climbing on Corsica. Bavella is where the stunning route “Jeef” on Punta di U Corbu lives.

Known for its high profile and quite “adult” sporty big routes, it might be surprising to learn that the Col de Bavella has climbing for all abilities. This location could host a several week climbing trip (and then some).

Dozens of multi pitch classics and over 100 sport routes are hosted by this fine area. Unless confined solely to sports climbing, a set of 60m ropes, a bunch of shoulder length slings, a set of nuts and a set of cams should prove useful.

For some routes, the crux may well be the approach. A machete and flame thrower have been described as useful for any off trail travel (!). The maquis can be fierce…

A good initiation spot for sport climbing is right at the Col. Sectors Filetta, Margheritta, La Tarella, Mursella, Oriu, Nuca, Prugnola, Campanella, etc, have a variety of routes from easy to harder. Plenty to do here for a number of days and the approach trails are pretty straightforward.
