Lu Strittu is a small but very interesting tract of limestone slightly overhanging cliff (crag ) with medium difficulty (level), particularly with regards to the routes from 5c to 6 °, that even if always with jugs  are burly and require enduring.

The other sector, the Balcone together with the Gabbio, is for sure the best crag of Ferentillo. The two sectors are differently exposed.

Lu Strittu is sheltered from the wind and suitable for the coldest winter days, but not recommended in summer. Instead, the Balcone is practicable in summer late in the afternoon, when the air is not too hot.

L'Attico is a small winter area, recently re-equipped. The approach is quite long, but the rock quality is excellent, as it offers a good friction climbing. 


From Rome, take the A1 and exit at Orte . Here take the road to Terni. Take the third exit of Terni, Terni Est, to follow – Valnerina Marmore waterfall. Immediately after the exit take a new tunnel, then another tunnel leads directly into Valnerina completely bypassing Terni. Follow all the Nera Valley to the village of Ferentillo . Do not take a left at the first indication for Ferentillo, but continue quanche hundred meters then turn right and follow the signs Precept - Mummies. Take the Avenue of climbing and park under the stone farmhouse refreshment bar. Overcoming the walls of the Mummies, go and park just before a bottleneck characteristic where the road passes through a notch in the rocks.
