Lumignano Brojon

By: PlanetMountain
Country: Italy, Region: Veneto, Town: Lumignano (Vicenza)

Lumignano used to be one of the most famous crags in Italy. Times have changed, but this crag still has a lot to offer. One of its most recent additions is Monte Brojon: divided into four very different sectors and with over 50 routes to choose from, it is proving to be extremely popular. "Brojon classico" has many easy routes and faces SW, while the overhanging "strapiombi" are ideal for those who love short, powerful testpieces.

GETTING THERE

Lumignano lies a few kilometers south of Vicenza. From Vicenza follow the highway SS247 (signposted Este), which runs alongside the Colli Berici. Turn right for Costozza and Lumignano immediately after Longare: Monte Brojon and other crags come into view shortly after the first of these two villages. To get to Monte Brojon park the car before the church, walk up some steps and continue along the well-marked path (Eremo) which leads to the hermitage. Do not turn left up to the hermitage. Instead, keep right, cross the small stream and continue uphill to the crag. Alternatively, park on the main road and walk up Via Brojo past the houses directly to the "Strapiombi" sector. Use the map provided for further reference.

THE CLIMBING

The climbing varies greatly from one sector to the next. The routes in sector "Strapiombi" are short, powerful and intense on large holds. The near horizontal roof below is even shorter and harder . The routes in sector "Pilastro" are much longer and vertical, while in "Brojon classico" the angle of the crag eases and so do the grades of the routes.

FOOD AND ACCOMODATION

Lumignano is a small village with only a few bars and one small supermarket. B&B In Valle, Longare, 0444/958223 The nearest campsite is in Vicenza: Campeggio Vicenza, tel. 0444/582311, Strada Pelosa 239.
