Crag features

Paglia Orba is regarded one of the finest mountains in Corsica and is the 4th highest, often likened to a large sharks tooth.

Approach notes

Start from the Col de Vergio on Road D84. The Col can be reached by car from Porto on the western coast or from Bastia or Corte on the eastern part of the island.

From Bastia and Corte take RN 193 and at Francardo turn into the Golo valley using D84. The first part of the drive takes you through the magnificent Scala di Sta Regina, a beautiful gorge which invites climbers. The road follows the Golo river and in the climbs in a lot of wide turns towards Col de Vergio.

From Ajaccio take the coastal highway D81. It is not very far but the highway winds around and over a lot of bays and passes. Shortly before Porto you have to go through the Calenche. The road is VERY narrow, and since the Calenche is a major tourist attraction lots of coaches use it. So it can take up to an hour to drive the 5km between Piana and Porto! From Porto get on D84 which leads you to Col de Vergio.
