Canyon

Liguria, IT

A canyon lies on the right side of the road close to a bend shortly before Caprauna. It leads all the way down to the road and is overgrown with vegetation. Walls of optimum compact limestone are visible higher up. Unfortunately these haven’t been bolted yet, but numerous patrolling visits of many active bolters of this valley let one imagine that sooner or later the higher sector of this canyon will become one of the most interesting centres of the high valley. The cliff was bolted by Marco Zambarino and remains hidden amongst the trees a couple of meters away from the road. At first sight it doesn’t appear to be very inviting. It offers routes on compact limestone which are really not to be underestimated. Hardly any of the routes have horizontal holds. The holds are also often hidden and make good footwork an absolute requirement. Due to the fact that the routes are never longer than about 10m, the difficulty is very compressed. Ideal for visits in the summer also on boiling hot days.
