One of the many 3 star classics of the crag.

Apparently Piazza Grande means layback in Italian, I don't know if anyone can confirm this. But they got it wrong on this route ;-)

Google says; In the Italian language, Piazza Grande means "the large square".
Which in my mind is conclusive proof that layback is the correct option.

That's the sort of line that really shouldn't have bolts in it...

Agree, what's the excuse for bolts here? "Its a sport crag"... Pfft.

Laybacking is called piazen in German.

The no 1 rule of climbing- layback.

Bolts every 1.5m by the looks, nice looking route though, good photo too!

bloody hell, let the italians have some sense, Odile have some fun, and that's definitively a layback!
