Sadly, there is no amount of overbite which guarantees success, 3 kbThe Swiss bouldering venue of Cresciano is world famous.

It's famous for hard boulder problems like Dream Time from Fred Nicole or The story of two worlds from Dave Graham.

It's famous for its beautiful setting, with cool, grey granite jumbled amongst warm, gold chestnut trees. It's famous for offering some of the best alpine bouldering, ranging from nice and easy to outrageously hard. It's famous for beautiful moves, powerful crimpfests and some inspiring tall lines.

Cresciano is nearly famous for being famous....

Sarah Burmester takes us on a tour of the best Swiss Granite!

it's not in the Maggia valley!!!

the valley where Cresciano lies goes from bellinzona up to the gotthard pass and it's called Val Leventina.

Val Maggia is more to the west (stretches to the north from Locarno)
