Sport and Trad climbing from Lake Maggiore to Simplon, from Mt. Rosa to Devero, Formazza, Vigezzo and Antigorio valleys
This is the fourth edition of the guidebook reviewing the crags and the walls of Ossola, covering the whole area of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola and introducing the newest climbing spots, such as Nibbio, Onzo and Ponte Romano. The restyling allow us to adopt a more thorough approach; the descriptions are more accurate, to the benefit of the climbers coming from other areas. For the first time, we have published a fully translated German version, for the ever growing number of climbers coming from German-speaking areas and willing to test themselves on the wonderful rock of Ossola, be it the cracks of Cadarese, Balma and Yosesigo, the prsitine walls of Sempione and Devero or enjoy some of the most renowned gems such as Premia and Croveo.
