Hey, i have the bouldering guide for Val Di Mellow, but i don't know where to find a guide book that covers the sport routes there?

Some people have suggested ones what cover the trad there but im looking for sport route guide.

Any suggestions?

Thaaaaanks!

There's an excellent pamphlet available from one of the local cafes covering the sport.

In reply to SarahElizabethMoran: I bought one when I got there. They sell it at the tourist info and at the gear shop in the village. Ended up not using it much and using the trad guide more. Also ended up losing it at a crag so I am afraid I can not remember the name of it. Most of the sport climbs are actually out of the val di mello valley although there are crags up the valley road.

In reply to SarahElizabethMoran: Val di Mellow certainly sounds like a crag to chill out on!

The sport guide for the area is this: http://www.versantesud.it/INGLESE/dettaglio.asp?id=299

Val di Mello itself is primarily trad, but the huge boulder at the entrance to the valley (Sasso Remenno) is a decent sport climbing venue.

I agree, just a few bolted routes in the valley (and great big walls as well) and anyway long runouts to be expected. The ethic used to be strictly trad. Just outside the valley the Remenno boulder is bolted, a few multipitch routes are bolted and on the road to val Masino a nice crag with slabby mutlipitch routes is bolted (El Schenun).
