Description 

Complex towers of dolomite jutting out of the chestnut forests near Lugano.

Many small sectors (over 30 in the SAC Ticino guidebook). Huge range, many easy and many hard climbs. Tallest ~200 m, mostly single or two pitches.

Getting There 

This ridge runs from north east to southwest, with three main parking areas. See the SAC Ticino guide for all the details.

For one option, drive from Lugano to town of Sonvico, and then up to small village of Creda. There is a parking spot right before a restaurant ('grotto') at the top of the hill. Hiking along marked trail towards the Capanna Pairolo will take you towards the climbing, along the north-west side of the ridge.

Many small trails run up to the ridge. Route names on the base are very helpful in figuring out where exactly you are!

One of the longer routes in Denti.Upper pitches are technically easier, but more adventurous: grass, offwidth, fewer bolts... giving it a proper alpine feel....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
