/ Climbing north of Rome
Mainly on a family holiday, but hoping to squeeze an odd days climbing in ifi can!
Looking on the UKC find crags map, it looks like there is a couple of sport crags within a few hours drive, but just wondering if anyone knows of any other sport/trad/bouldering/scrambling in the area that would be worth a visit?
the guidebook mentioned also includes a range of minor climbing areas in the vicinity, but I have no experience there ...
have a nice journey, thomas
Is there much single pitch stuff? As will be with my girlfriend and she is not keen on multi-pitch!
The heat could be a bit of a problem but you have a good few options if you have transport available.
For info on routes look on Falesia.it and you should be able to find plenty of info to help you make a choice.
To stay cool I'd go up into the mountains if you could and have a play around Gran Sasso. A day on the Paretone should keep you happy for multi pitch work or equally you could both have a lot of fun scrambling and doing the via Ferrata to get up Corno Grande and Corno Piccolo (which also has lots of shorter routes). Plenty of other options but a quick google on summit post or similar should give you an idea of the places above.
You also have a bit of bouldering near you in Viterbo at the top of the biggest hill you can see looking east, Monte Cimino which is nice and shaded by Beech woods so may be worth a look.
Anyhow plenty of stuff about, just needs transport.
Hope you enjoy the area,
