A small but historic granite rock face at the entrance to Val Genova.
The rock face, located at the entrance to the Val Genova, is a piece of the valley’s mountaineering history,  having been the training wall for the historic Rampagaroi group in the 1960s and 1970s, and the granite where Cesare Maestri tested the famous compressor that he used during the Cerro Torre climb in Patagonia in 1970, and where the “pressure bolts” from that time can still be found.

This rock face can be climbed at any time of year owing to its position and southern exposure.

  • Climb: 6 bolted pitches from 6a to 7c, other pitches with outdated protection and “pressure bolts” (WARNING!)
  • Exposure: South
  • Type: granite

Price:

Free.

 

Equipment

Normal for rock climbing: harness, shoes, climbing chalk, quickdraws, rope and safety equipment.

 

Climbers are aware of and accept the dangers inherent in this activity and do so at their own risk.

Getting there

After passing the built-up area of Carisolo to the north, turn left on to the Strada della Val Genova.  Follow the road to the “La Prisa” Bar-Restaurant and park the car out the front.

Walk back along the asphalt road around 15metres and take the grassy road that goes into the woods towards a water plant.

Follow the track that runs alongside the aqueduct drain until you cross the iron steps.

Approach: around 5 minutes from the parking area.
