This is a definitive guidebook covering both the trad and sport multi-pitch rock climbing found in Val di Mello, which has some of the best rock climbing in the Alps. Due to its huge towering granite walls, Val di Mello is often described as “Little Yosemite” and has 100’s of long multi-pitch routes across all grades and styles. The big wall mountaineering routes are up to 800m long though there are also many routes around 200m to 300m long. The granite rock here is solid, clean and featured with many cracks, corners and grooves.
In total 43 separate climbing areas are described, detailing many 100’s of multi-pitch routes. All the routes are shown on either colour photo-topos or colour topo-diagrams, along with a description. Each route also has a French technical grade, pitch length and a suggestion of what trad gear is required.
Published in July 2014, this guidebook is in Italian text only though the topos are very clear.
