Something about Rian Cornei


This guide (split in two parts in ClimbAdvisor) contains 11 crags if the Rain Cornei Valley, that can be reached in an easier way (or exclusively) from a parking spot in the lower part of the Valley: Falesia della Formica. Falesia del Ragno, Falesia del Delfino, Falesia del Gufo, Falesia dell’Orso, Falesia di Parsifal, Falesia del Nirvana, Falesia del Cinghiale, Falesia della Volpe, Falesia del Lupo, Falesia del Geko. Then there are 7 crags that can be reached in an easier way (or exclusively) from a parking spot in the higher part of the Valley.

Almost all have been discovered and equipped by Giorgio Delfino between 2006 and 2011.

The routes are of medium/low difficulty, through vertical or slightly overhanging good limestone walls sprinkled of pockets.

Most of the crags of this guide need some gardening.

The space under the rock wall is almost always not comfortable, thus these crags are not good for families with children.



Take the A10 highway (Autostrada dei Fiori), direction Ventimiglia, and exit at Feglino (this exit can be taken only from Genova). Then, once at the Stop sign, turn left, pass under the highway flyover, and continue uphill toward the town of Orco, along the SP27 road. After a little more than 3 Km, few hundred meters before the Costa-villa village, there is a junction. Once at this junction, turn downhill right up to a big stone building, in front of a parking spot. (44.215833 8.337548).
