5 second approaches to some of Europe's best granite crack climbing. Yes, there are bolts, but you don't have to use them!

~ 50 routes, in three sectors (labeled 1-3 in the Extrem Sud guidebook). A few 6a, lots in the 6b-7a range, and two of Europe's hardest trad crack climbs at 8a and 8b+

Getting There 

From Switzerland, drive over the Simplon pass, through Gondo and the border. The parking is a nondescript pulloff a few km from the border; see detailed map in Filidor's Extrem Sud
