This long wall of compact limestone consists of rock which is usually found in the “mountains”. It is positioned at an altitude of almost 1400 metres in the immediate vicinity of the Colle di Caprauna on the foot of the mountain Monte Armetta and it presents itself like a fortress. Well visible before going down (or when about to descend) into the Val Tanaro.
On the smooth rock the climbing style has always been technical and requires good footwork. The routes have intermittent intensely fingery passages and the grip is a constant surprise.
The opening of the new community run mountain hut at the bottom of the crag completes the offer of the Rocca. It turns it into one of the nicest climbing areas in Liguria for those who love climbing on vertical walls in the sun. Given the south exposition of the cliff it can also be visited in winter but bear in mind potential snow (we are at 1400 metres).
