Something about Acuto


Small and quiet crag, discovered by my friend Amedeo and its mountaineering team of Fiuggi, which, in August 1998, asked Stefano Milani and Armando Onorati to open the first routes here. Other routes were opened by Stefano Milani in 1999. Other routes have been opened since 2011 by the local climbers C. Barrini and A. Zangrilli.

The crag is North West exposed, at an altitude of 900 m above sea level, Thus is good for climbing from May to October. During the summer, in fact, there are a pleasant shade and a cool temperature. The routes go on a vertical or slightly overhanging limestone wall, not much eroded by the wind or the water, thus the climbing is very technical.

All the routes are equipped by inox expansion (or glue in) bolts and belays.


Take the A1 motorway and exit at Anagni-Fiuggi. Then follow the sign to Fiuggi, taking the SS155. Continue for about 12 km then follow the signs to the hamlet of Acuto. Once at Acuto, don’t go toward the center of the hamlet, but take Viale Roma toward the Cemetery. Few meters before the Cemetery take the cemented road and continue along this road (without taking any fork to the right)  up ad hairpin turn (41.803012 13.164168) near some huts used as stable and an evident wood sign to the “Sentiero E1” (that is E1 Path), or “Sentiero Natura Cesa Tonda” (that is Naturalistic Path of Cesa Tonda). Park here and continue on foot.
