Something about Perrone del Corvo

The crag of Perrone del Corvo

The crag is located just below the main peak if the Perrone del Corvo Spur, which reaches the maximum altitude of 1035 meters.

The rocky structure is divided in 4 different areas, practically consecutive: they develop at a height between 15 and 45 metres. The highest area is the main, charcaterised by the presence of a huge roof, almost horizontal.

The approach is almost entirely within a coppice. Climbing some easy rocks, you can reach the the base of the route in almost 20 minutes.

The routes are all equipped with chains for descent, and, since the routes are new, the use of the helmet is recommended.

The limestone wall of Perrone del Corvo is South West faced: it is vertical partly vertical and partly overhanging, with cracks, corners, overhangs, roofs, for all tastes. The woods at the base of the wall gives relaxing moments in the shade of the trees. The spot is good for climbing in winter and in mid-seasons. in summer, instead, it could be warm.

The spot is surrounded by the nature: it's in front of the northern face of the Mount Semprevisa, the highest peak  of the chain of the Lepini Mounts, which, with its 1536 meters of altitude, and its magnificent view of the Pontine plain and of the Tyrrenian sea, is one of the winter favorite destinations for the hikers.
