Climbing into the very steep crux. April 2014. Fre...

Description 

An overhanging, orange bowl of rock filled with pockets and tufas, located high above the Grande Grotta with excellent views and climbs ranging from 6b through 8b.

Well worth the "long" approach, which is about 20 minutes past Spartacus (making for 45-50 minutes total from the road).

Getting There 

Hike past the Grande Grotta to the left, passing Spartacus and following a blue || blaze up, past a fence, down a gully and back up. You can see the crag during most of the approach.

For 5.10 climbers, this route is the reason to make the long hike to Jurassic Park. Steep climbing on huge holds the entire way. Toss in the amazing position and you've got a classic route. With an 80m rope (maybe even 70m?) start from the dirt below the unprotected, low angle slab and scramble up to the alcove to get started on the steep climbing. Otherwise, scramble up to the alcove and clip into the fixed rope belay anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

This is a wonderful little area stacked with amazing climbing. It's well worth the extra effort to get here and you're likely to have the place to yourself or with minimal others. A fine day is to start climbing at Spartacus and then move up to Jurassic when Spartacus gets crowded.
