Description

Many Via Ferrata routes around the city of Lecco, with rock quality and climbing difficulty perhaps better than the Dolomites.

Some key areas include:
* Corno Medale + Grigna Meridionale
* Pizzo d'Erna + Resegone
* Bobbio

also within driving range are
* Monte Grona by Menaggio
* VF Tre Signori (remarkable granitic gneiss) by Bellinzona Switzerland.
* . . (famous non-VF climbing in Bregaglia + Val di Mello + Ticino).

Note that most of the VFs around Lecco are protected with chain not cable.

So a reduced-fall-distance device like the Skylotec Rider will not work there.
. . (? But perhaps something like a Fifi hook inserted into the (usually) large-hole chain links could provide protection for hard strenuous moves - in between the sometimes widely spaces chain-to-rock anchor points ?)

Getting There

Close to the big city of Milan / Milano -- with major international airport and connections to major high-speed roads, with major train and bus stations. From Zurich could be reached via Chur and (difficult) Passo Spluga / Splugenpass - (or longer on better roads by Gotthard tunnel to Lugano to Menaggio ferry).

Some VF routes are reached by lifts which can be reached by bus service from the city.
