Crag features

This is a two tier crag, only seconds from the Vicosoprano (Switzerland) to Chiavenna (Italy) road. Probably the most popular wet weather alternative to climbers in the Vicosoprano/Bondo area. There are about 80 routes with the harder ones being on the upper tier.

Topo available here, along with many others for the area:

Approach notes

Located 1km east of S.Croce. Cragside parking available but can be packed at busy times.

Guidebooks

Super crag, probably the best local one as the parking is easy and obvious and the walk in is just easy! Lots of varied routes and styles, all grades to suit, very little of the granite 'no holds' slab climbing that typifies every other crag in the valley.

A brief guide to this crag and afew other bolted ones in the area is available from the tourist info office at the train station in Chiavenna. It a good crag with a superb walk-in!
