The Corno Grande (=Big Peak) of the Mountain Gran Sasso in the clouds, seen from Falesia dell'Arapietra.
The Falesia dell'Arapietra is a cliff of very compact limestone conglomerate, 1880 meters above the sea level. The approach is quite long (almost a half-hour), but the path is comfortable and good for families with children, as is the crag too.
The crag is South-East faced, and good for climbing in summer and also in the early autumn during the hottest days.
The routes are mainly overhanging. and of medium/high difficulties.
Some old pitons witness that the cliff was trad climbed in the past by local mountaineers.
