Settore Centrale at Monte Cucco
With nearly 60 routes, this sector is stacked with classic venues.
From the guidebook, Finale 007, “This is a wall of rare beauty and all of the routes are worth climbing”.
Historical climbing on classics established from the late sixties to more modern classics put up in the 80’s and 90’s.
Several three pitch routes, and, plenty of one pitch climbs.
The technical nature of the climbing, with precise footwork, can tend to make the routes seem harder for their grades.
Three star classics from 5b to 8a.
Located just south (to the right of) Settore della Torre.
Leave the parking lot on the main trail, same as the approach as for Settore della Torre, noting the large vertical slab area just to the right of the tower.
Pass under the La Torre, and, the well travelled trail heads right to the long, flatish climbing base area of Settore Centrale.

Fun crack climbing on nifty features.Three pitch route that can be done as a single pitch.Climb up the left facing corner, pull around the roof onto the face, then, passing the stump, back into the crack. Continue up the crack and hit the belay station straight up, or, pull out right to do a single pitch.Continue up for two more pitches of easier climbing.Fun!...[more] Browse More Classics in International

This sector sees much less traffic than La Torre or Antifeatro, making it a good choice to chill out away from the dogs and babies and musclemen...
