Crag features

There are three sectors found within the Bonifatu valley.

Secteur du Bloc, as the name suggests, is a huge boulder in the middle of the Figarella riverbed.

Secteur Figarella dominates over the river and offers three great multipitch routes.

Secteur Melaghja is located further up the valley overlooking Melaghja river. There are a number of multipitch routes, some of which will require the use of traditional protection.


For the approach to Secteur Melaghja, the trail is marked from the main path by cairns but be sure to turn upstream when you meet the river for 20m or so (dont cross where the trail first meets the river) before crossing by some huge boulders, then you will find the continuation on the other side. 60m double ropes make the descent much easier.
