Something about Rocca di Corno


This guide contains two historical crags of Rocca di Corno: the Falesia del Ghiro and Futura, located on the same cliff, 50 meters from each other.

It were equipped by Giorgio Delfino between 1999 and 2005, with glue-on bolts.

The routes are od medium length and low/medium difficulty,  through vertical walls, overhangs and corners. Only one of the two ares is good for families with children.

Both are good for climbing during the mid seasons, and for a half day, in summer. Both are not recommended  for winter climbing.
