Crag features

Pleasant and accessible crag of high quality gneiss, just a short drive from Torino. Many routes are multipitch but are most often just climbed to the first loweroff. Bolted routes on walls and slabs, but with a couple of good quality trad-able cracklines to get you practicing for Orco! (Cactus and Arco del Ramarro)

To find the newly redeveloped Placca Acido Formico and Sperone del Gran Ritorno scramble up the dirt path left of the main cliff for 30m

To find the new Estate Inferiore, look up right from the start of the Via Ferrata, or follow the Ferrata footpath up 50m past the signs for Sectore Dahu, then find a thin track up left passing over rocks with cairns.

Approach notes

Parking for around 6 cars at the small road that leads from the back of Caprie village to the obviously visible crags, further parking on the road with consideration. Train from Torino Porto Nuova to Cordove, and an easy 2km bike from there.
