val del orco / italy
« on: August 21, 2009, 01:22:31 am »
i've just returned from a short trip to italian val del orco.
although i read the occasional article about the place in magazines, i had never made it there.
That place is fantastic, crackclimbing at its best. for all those granite fiends over here in europe, val del orco is the place to go! we climbed caporal and were the only party on the cliff that day, unbelievable considering the quality of the climbing!
freeclimbing and bigwallclimbing of the best quality(up to +/-200m), the big cliffs in walking distance from a nice campground by the river, pizzas for 5?. strange that the place is not way more popular!
the guidebook is called ''rock paradise'' and that says it all!
