Lario Rock Falesie is the definitive guidebook that covers all the sport climbing on crags and walls situated between Lecco and Como, including the Grigne massif. The mild weather, mitigated by Lake Como, the relative low altitude and the abundance of limestone walls make this area one of the most popular in northern Italy.
Concentrated around the town of Lecco on the shore of Lake Como, this guidebook details 108 separate crags and many 1,000’s of routes at all grades. The majority of the routes are single pitch along though many bolted multi-pitch routes are also included.
All the routes are described on clear colour topos with French grades used throughout along with the route length. At the start of each crag, is a location map plus further information regarding orientation of the crag and hence exposure to the sun, the condition of the bolts, the overall beauty of the crag, how good the parking is, how popular it is, and if it is child friendly.
Published in July 2018 this guidebook is in Italian text only, and it includes many excellent action colour photographs. There has been a massive growth of new routes in this area that is reflected in this fully revised guidebook (5th edition) that has more 50% pages than the previous 2011 edition.
