Crag features

Routes mainly in the low to mid grades, family friendly location with minimal approach.  Year round climbing, although too hot in the middle of the summer daytime (with risk of mosquitos).  The dark red verrucano lombardo rock (metamorphised sandstone) is grippy and feature rich, making for interesting slab climbing interspersed with cracks and roofs.  Some spaced bolts - although mostly friendly bolting - nuts can be used to supplement occassionally.  Some fragile rock, helmet recomended.  Monticolo was the first crag to be developed in Valle Camonica in 1978 and the area features prehistoric petroglyphs attributed to the Camuni people.

Approach notes

From the SS42 take the Boario Terme exit and from the round-a-bout at the end of the exit road take the first exit (north) towards Esine (Via San Martino).  After 200m turn right onto Via Industria, left at the next fork onto Via Prade and follow that for 600m before turning right onto a small road that tracks right around the bottom of the hillside to a small carpark and kiosk (250m).  Either park there or continue further along the small road turning right (another 250m) rather than passing under the SS42 and parking after a further 300m at the side of the field opposite a tourist information point.
