DescriptionMonte Orlando is a big seaside cliff on the Mediterranean and is just one of many many climbing areas at Sperlonga. After approaching via rappelling, traverse (Pitch #1) to the big flat dry ledge 10m above the water to the base of the route.
The route climbs behind the huge freestanding pillar clearly visible from the tourist overlook and basically face climbs through a massive chimney feature ending up back at the top of the cliff where you started.
Wear helmets, a wondrous route with the water at your feet.
Monte Orlando has only multipitch routes and most other Sperlonga area routes are single pitch. Rates of all grades exist on Monte Orlando.
