Looking for some advice, me and a friend are keen to go for our first big wall in April, somewhere in Europe. Ideally we are looking for a dream easy route A2(?) where we would have the chance to train for Yosemite in September. We have 3 full days to climb and ideally we would need a route which ledges because we do not have a port ledge. We though about Gran Paradiso but it will still be quite cold in there so we are also considereing Spain.... Any suggestions and ideas would be very much appreciated.

cheers,

In reply to Murilo Lessa: Monte Brento so many big wall routes there to choose from.

Like bombshell said, the Arco area is going to be favourite that early in the year, the guide is Sarca Walls from Versante Sud (in English).

In reply to Murilo Lessa: Mini big walling in Norway looks awesome!

In reply to Murilo Lessa: The Verdon is more popular than you might think for aid on the opposite side from the normal climbing. It will be cold at that time of year.

The Barroude wall is massive and rarely visited

In reply to Murilo Lessa: At Verdon there is also aid climbing on the S. Facing wall, so in the sun most of the day. Check the definitive guide http://www.leilagramusas.fr/frameset.html
