Crag features

There is more variety in the climbing than Isili�s reputation suggests. Yes, there are plenty of steep and sustained stamina-fests, on big pumpy pockets and side-pulls, usually protected by savage undercut starts; however, there are also plenty of more technical vertical routes, usually with pockets varying from monos to half-body size. In some places the undercut starts have been by-passed where the locals have built stone towers, held together loosely by expanding window foam. Tottering off these towers is initially a bit worrying but you rapidly get used to it. Above these towers the more friendly-angled rock gives some superb pitches in the mid 6s which would be 8a or harder with the starts.

Not sure why Corvo Spaziale is not in the database - it is one of the better crags and complients Pietra Filosofale well as offers steeper climbing and is not hard on the skin or finger tendons. Some of the bolts on Corvo Solitario are in poor condition

Volunteer to moderate Isili
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
