it's not in the Maggia valley!!!
the valley where Cresciano lies goes from bellinzona up to the gotthard pass and it's called Val Leventina.
Val Maggia is more to the west (stretches to the north from Locarno)
Is it possible to get some recomended problems in the 7s here, Seems as though there is a lot to go at but i've only ever heard of dreamtime. there must be some "famous" "classic" "must-dos" ?
XP, Grotte de Soupirs, la pioche, vol au vent, stinky pete, harry spotter, il partner, la nave va.
The one left of le boule looks excellent too.
