/ In Praise of Ponte Brolla

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
There always appears to be folks looking for reasonable graded sport climbing in nice places. Put Ponte Brolla in southern Switerland on the list if that is you. The main crag has a couple of hundred routes across the grades from single to multi (about 10) pitches, easily accessible, and minutes from the road all on perfect glaciated Gneiss. There are many other cliffs, some pretty big, scattered over the area.
The weather is much better then the high Alps.

Went there a couple of times when the weather crapped out in the Swiss alps. A completely different climate and like a piece of Italy in Switzerland. Interesting food. Always found it quite hot and humid. Whilst diverting, I have to say I didn't really get on with the gneiss (often slippery stuff). Seemed to be some great canoeing there too.

I climbed here about 15 years ago after getting washed out of the mountains - it was August and roasting. September has been much equable so far, though still quite warm.
