The prohibition period from climbing in Ripa Maiale has ended on 1 June.
In this hot season, the crag is good for climbing only for morning persons: in fact, the wall is in shadow until midday, and you can have a good climbing there even during the hottest days. Then the sun starts to illuminate the rightmost part of the wall, and in a half hour, it heats everything (with negligible exceptions).
The approach is now dry, after the heavy rains of May.
Therefore, thanks to all the climbers that respected such prohibition, without creating additional quarries with the authorities.
I wish everyone to have a nice time climbing the routes of our beloved Ripa.
