A peaceful group of crags lie just uphill from Lumignano. There are many overhung tufas, cave climbs, and boulders. Most of the routes are bolted, if you have a few small cams (bd.75) they will come in handy occasionally, otherwise 10 draws will get most routes. There are only two easy routes, they are long and you will be surprised to find many of the locals free-soloing past you on these. Many routes are two pitch, and could be done as one. They often have climbing festivals here that are quite fun, be aware of the language barrier. There is a cafe/bar across from the chapel in Lumignano where a photocopied guidebook can be bought for 2-euro when they are sometimes in stock.
