Fonte Avellana is a small jewel on the slopes of the Mountain Catria, at è un piccolo gioiello sulle falde del Monte Catria, at an altitude varying from 1000 to 1200 meters.
29 routes of medium and medium/high difficulties, in a mountain environment, but definitely non-hostile. In fact the approach is short and comfortable, the space at the bottom of the routes is wide and without precipices: I mean, it's a climbing post good for families with children.
the rock is an excellent mountain limestone, solid and rough, with water erosion pockets, crimps, little and big cracks, pockets, pretty much perfect.
The rock is not covered by lichen or even by soil, despite being within a magnificent beech forest, probably because in winter the beaches are leafless so that the wall is bathed by the sun all the morning.
