Climbing on Supramonte
Multi-pitch routes and baseclimbs at the seafront, cappuccino and sun – what else are you looking for?
Let’s see where it is:
Best time of the year:
End of April offers perfect temperatures (it is not too hot), rarely rainfall and plenty of daylight. It is also still pleasantly quiet in off-season.
There is a sufficient number of routes for all levels, most routes are in between French 6a – 7b.
The drilled climbing areas are mostly in good conditions. The protection of many routes can easily complemented with a set of Stoppers and a few midsize Camalots. Beside the drilled routes there are also plenty of routes for clean trad climbing.
60 m double rope (for baseclimbs 70 m single rope), 12 – 14 quickdraws (longer quickdraws are advantageous), some slings
The latest editions of both Topo Guidebooks “Pietra di Luna Crags” and “Pietra di Luna Trad & Multipitches” have to be treated with caution. Especially directions and distances are often fundamentally wrong. This should be kept in mind for your daily planning and timetable.
