Crag features

Great granite multi-pictch crag. Steeper than the nearby Sergent with mixture of trad and bolted routes.

Approach notes

From the campsite at the top of the tunnel above the village of Noasca walk down the old road parallel to the old tunnel. Walk through a short tunnel and when you come to a load more old concrete infrastructure and a slabby crag close to the road leave the road and head up the scree following small cairns. 25 to 45 minutes to the routes.

La Piramide needs adding to this area routes; Fessura per P.A. 120m hs 4b Legolas...Humm Tutta Libera 130m vs 4c Caco 80m E5 6b Budino alla Fragolo 20m E3 6a (see Al Churchers guide)
