This is the definitive guidebook to the alternative crags around Finale, which describes all the sports climbing in the valleys to the west of Finale in the region of Liguria. In total there are 6 valleys, which are Val Varatella, Val Nimbalto, Val Pennavaire, Valle Argentina, Val Nervia and Val Tanaro. Together this combined area has more than 100 crags and thousands of routes across a wide range of grades on solid limestone rock. This wonderful Mediterranean environment has a great combination of single and multi-pitch routes.
At the start of each crag there is information about the style and character of the climbing, along with the ideal rock climbing season. There is also a location map, access information, plus further information regarding total number of routes per grade, type of descent, and if it is child friendly. Each route has a symbol indicating the style of climbing and the type of protection (i.e. bolts) to be found. All the climbs are described with clear topo diagrams and French grades.
