Valgiubola is WEST oriented and offer to you perfect climbing conditions during the cold and intermediate seasons. Only from the end of December and January, it’s quite hard to have human conditions. When the sun is down at the horizon the wall, remain in the shadow of the opposite wood too long to benefit of the sun. Otherwise, don’t be worried about the low temperature when you park the car. You can leave the car with temperature below the zero and climb without shirt. In the winter, you cannot climb on cloudy days while during the intermediate season you have all day long to enjoy this place. After raining periods is impossible to climb in Valgiubola Alta the water is draining along most of the lines. In the summer, the spot is too hot unless you go climbing early in the morning and late in the afternoon for a few hours.  Not rarely, you can meet roe deer and wild boars. For this reason, don’t leave any organic waste in the Crag.
