Lower elevation west facing crag situated above the quaint pocket namesake village of Sirta.

Bolt protected routes on bomber gneiss with plentiful crispy edges.

53 routes ranging from 5b to 7c with the bulk of the climbing at the 6a-c level (French scale).

Fun climbing on "gneiss" rock!

Getting There 

Situated between Sondrio and Morbegno on the SS38 across from Ardenno.

8km from Morbegno towards Sondrio, see sign for Sirta, cross the bridge, and head up into the small village.

Park at the parking lot next to the church. A sweet footpath leads up in a few minutes to the base of the crag.

Nicely done cobbled stone trail from the summit back to the base should you top out the crag on any route.

Climbing Season

For the Italy area.

Straight up steep slab climbing on good, sticky edges.Joggling right and left keeps the grade much more modest (rated 6a+ in a more recent guidebook but didn't seem near that hard).Fun and a popular area at this crag....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
