The climbing area of Sottosassa offers a large number of itineraries on porphyry. It is located in a wonderful place, the Travignolo valley with a stream that flows alongside the walls.

The fascinating cliff of Sottosassa develops along the orographic right of the Travignolo stream which over time has eroded the porphyritic sides of the homonymous valley and given shape to the rocks of this characteristic and unusual place immersed in a very suggestive environment. Climbing takes place a few steps from the stream on a porphyry characterized by clear cracks and vertical plates, smooth as a billiard table, which require skills of crack technique and strength and resistance of fingers.

  • 4 climbing sectors - 40 routes - from 5a to 7c +
  • south / west exposure - ideal from April to November. In the summer late afternoon is recommended
  • routes length: 10/30 mt
  • type of rock: climbing both technical and strength on porphyry with notches and cracks, with some rare holes dug
