First pitch of Normale at Sasso Bianco

Description 

A fun, three pitch friction ramble with great views.

One of the longer routes at the crag.

P1: Start up below the left side of a long roofy area. Climb up the ramp and face to an anchor at the left side of the corner of the roof. 15m.

P2: Climb up, then move left out of the dihedral trough and face climb up, moving left again into the shallow corner and face climbing up to the belay ledge. 25m.

P3: Climb up the face to the right of the corner. The little hump at the top is the end of the route and belay anchor (left of a nice, bright flowering bush). 15m

More interesting that it appears...!

Location 

A short approach across the road from the parking lot. Follow the trail to the middle of the crag.

Trail goes to the route Spigulino (which is marked at the base of that route). Go right past the next route, Fessura del Lavoro, and you're at Normale. Starts under the left side of a long roof up a lower angle ramp.

Protection 

Bolted sport route with fixed belay stations including rappel rings and glued in staples.

Rappel route (there may be a walk off?).
