Approach notes
Park carefully at Protezione Civile and cross the dual carriageway (with care) walk up easily to the crag. Names painted on rock help locate the routes

Possible to walk down form the top, head through the woods to the road, turn right, walk downhill until large white footpath (old road?) heads pleasantly down through the woods to the base, walk back along the road (carefully!)
