Monte Moneta - Berger Area

This area was born in the '90s by Bruno Vitale and Roberto Ferrante, and recently reequipped replacing the old belays, rebolting some routes and equipping new routes, always thanks to the untiring work of Bruno Vitale & Co.

Small but interesting area facing exactly the Parete delle Meraviglie.

Almost all the routes are on a gray wall on the left of a band of whitish overhangs not yet equipped. In the sun from mid-morning or early afternoon.
The area was dedicated to Giorgio Pasquini, speleologist, founder of the Speleo Club Roma, who died in 1998. In 1958 he had participated in the exploration of the gouffre of Berger (near Grenoble in France) which turned out to be the deepest cave in the world at the time.

The first four easy routes on the left were equipped during a climbing course of the Paolo Consiglio School of the Rome CAI in 2016.

The last routes on the right that starts from a terrace under the beginning of the white overhangs is the most difficult route of this area and has not yet been free climbed, the initial sequence could be between 7b and 7c.
