/ What guide to buy for Val Di Mellow
Some people have suggested ones what cover the trad there but im looking for sport route guide.
There's an excellent pamphlet available from one of the local cafes covering the sport.
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).
for some infos and the proper guidebook of the area.
