This area is located on the south flanks of the central Swiss Alps, in the northern-most reaches of the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino. The rock is raw alpine granite of good quality. A day out in this terrain, as with so many areas of Switzerland, tends to inspire grand visions of withdrawal from any and all occupations that entail fluorescent illumination, conditioned-air, and organization charts.
At the south portal of the Gotthard tunnel, the Bedretto valley takes off towards the west. The Nufenen pass carries on as the valley closes out, providing a road connection to both Valais and central Switzerland.
