Something about Grotti Bassa


Big cliff of conglomerate with pockets. The climb is sometimes painful and difficult for both hands and feet.

Typical cliff for locals, as the routes, which on sight are very hard, becomes easier and easier at rotpunukt. You need to get used to this kind of climbing, especially for the training of the tendons. Most of the hard routes are chipped.

Unlike Grotti Alta, the routes of Grotti Bassa are on the average shorter and more technical.

Proportionate to the grade, the easier routes are on the average more hard than the harder ones.


From Rome take the A1 highway towards Florence, exit at Fiano Romano, just before the barrier Roma Nord. From here take the SS4 Salaria towards Rieti. Shortly before Rieti, after a long gallery often closed for renovation, exit to the right along another stretch to four lanes and pass another gallery. Exit immediately after this second tunnel and take the SR 578 Cicolana on the left. Overcoming the village Casette. After a bridge, turn immediately on the left and park. Here you can park in the Grotti la Cura sectors and Grotti new area.
