This guidebook is the definitive rock climbing and sport climbing guidebook for the Tuscany region of Italy. The majority of the climbing is situated to the west of Florence around the towns of Pisa, Viareggio, Carrara, Massa, and Lucca. Also included are crags on the island of Elba (Isola D’Elba).
The guidebook describes 87 major crags and details 1,000’s of routes, across a wide range of grades. The climbing to be found in Tuscany is very diverse and this is very well reflected within the guidebook. It covers everything from single pitch sport routes to long multi-pitch routes, including some big wall bolted routes up to 550m long.
At the start of each crag, there is information regarding exposure to the sun, altitude, how good the parking is, how popular it is, and the general beauty of the crag. Each crag has a location map, and a good description giving a general overview of the area and type of rock climbing to be found there. All the climbs are described on clear topo diagrams with French grades.
