Yeah, you can almost clip the bolts from the road....

Description 

Fun, varied climbing on darkish granitic rock.

Get your friction addiction here.

42 routes ranging from 4b to 7c+ with the majority of the routes at 6a-c.

The name of the crag would indicate a lighter colored rock, but...it tends to a more darker gray.

A variety of climbing here on sticky, bumpy rock. Some face features and cracks.

Most routes are in the 15 to 25m length but there are several 2 and 3 pitch offerings.

South facing. Gets hot in the summer and warm bumper seasons.

Getting There 

From Chiavenna, take the SS36 a whoppin' 1 km to Prata Camportaccio. Take the main Via Roma street through town. Go around or through the houses at Milino (there will be a large drainage area to the south). When the road can cross the drainage on a bridge, instead, go straight past. At a hairpin bend, stay left on the smaller road going uphill. Past two more hairpin turns look for the crag and a parking lot on the left.

If you end up in the small cluster of houses at Lottano you've overshot. Go back down hill.

20m or less to the crag from the parking lot.

Climbing Season

For the Italy area.
