Luzzone Dam (Diga di Luzzone)*** 6a+
165m, 5 pitches. (5b, 5c, 6a, 6a+, 6a+) Plastic holds bolted onto the face of the Luzzone Dam. The world's longest artificial route, with more exposure than a bulldog's testicles. Very well equipped and easy to abseil off should you need to (some of the pitches are longer than 30m, so you'll need a long single or doubles/twins to escape). Otherwise it's an easy walk back down once you've topped out. 20CHF fee and a 100CHF refundable deposit (2007).

Hungover and cuffed, just enough rope, just enough quick draws, just enough chalk

Easy climbing of grade 5+, but do not underestimate how long and sustained this route is with 35-40m pitches! That is what makes it 6a. 13 quick draws required and be comfortable with hanging belays, you will be on them for a long time and they are not the best design up prepared for some numb legs. But well worth doing :-) Pay at the restaurant at the top of the dam.

Technically easy through out with big holds, maybe 5,5+ max. The 6a grade is given for the very sustained steep climbing. Do not underestimate this part. Also, make sure you have a nice harness as the hanging belays have to be some of the worst ones i have ever experienced :)
