Something about The River


“The River” crag is into the Frasassi Canyon, on the left side of the Sentino river.

It was made in 2016, for the Petzl Contest during the Frasassiclimbingfestival of that year.

The routes climb the rock wall along the river and a big cave, with a characteristic natural arch. The route “Cadono gli dei” was the arena were the best climbers of the Festival competed for the prize offered by Petal.

The 2016 edition was awarded by an evergreen Mauro Calibani and by the very young Laura Rogora.
