Description 

A variety of climbing awaits you at La Gola. Climbers of all ability levels can find something they're looking for on the many sectors at this relatively large climbing area. The crags all face different directions too, making climbing year-round here possible. And if it's raining, provided it hasn't been raining for days, you can climb sheltered routes in a large cave (but they start at 5.12).

Getting There 

From Sarche, drive northwest on the SP45bis until you reach the castle (Castel Toblino) which is situated on an island in the Lake Toblino. The road to the climbing area is directly across from the entrance to the castle, and due to the walls on either side of the small road you may have to turn around at the castle to get a better shot at entering the road. It's a dirt road which leads up switchbacks to the crags. On the upper sectors, the road is directly next to the rock and you could theoretically belay out of the car (if you weren't blocking the road by doing so). For the southern sectors, you have to park and walk a little further.

5.10 climbing leads up to a difficult crux. The crux is significantly harder than the rest and is composed of a blank section which requires balancing up onto a high foot to reach the next holds. It's rather frustrating......[more]   Browse More Classics in International
