sportclimbing in the Aosta valley
This climbing topoguidebook for the Aosta Valley describes 2450 single pitches and 316 long routes.
The Aosta Valley (Valle D'Aosta) has hundreds of single pitch and multi-pitch rock routes on well bolted gneiss rock. These routes are spread across a good range of grades with many delicate face climbs that range from 10m to over 350m long. The Aosta Valley is situated in the North West corner of the Italian Alps it is on the opposite side of the Mont Blanc tunnel from Chamonix. There is climbing throughout this valley from Courmayeur to Aosta and onto Point Saint Martin.
Bilingual, all areas are comprehensively described. Particularly successful are the pictograms, which really give a lot of information in a simple design (height of the rock, orientation of the climbing spot, ideal months, parking quality, approach time, suitability for children of the base of the wall of the sector, the number of routes in the respective grade, suitability of the wall in the rain; and then a lot of symbols that define the specific demand (technical route or finger strength etc) as well as depict the slope of the wall). The site plans provide the overview one needs. Everything else is topos on graphs of the climbing spots.
Thick and comprehensive.
