Climbing at Muzzerone

by Davide Battistella

Muzzerone, Liguria
The splendid view onto Muzzerone


The Muzzerone sea cliffs, situated high above Portovenere, form the extreme tip of the Cinque Terre National Park. This western flank of the Gulf of La Spezia is also known as the Gulf of the poets.

This area is characterised by silver pillars and white limestone faces that precipitate steeply into the sea, and a flora composed of maritime pines and plants typically associated with the Mediterranean.

So why visit this area?
Because Muzzerone is an area of quite incredible natural beauty. Its cliffs fall steeply into the blue sea, offering marvellous routes and a fantastic spectacle; seagull, raven and falcon display their ability in highly evocative surroundings.

Almost all sectors are not easily accessible, and this is perhaps the reason why Muzzerone is never overcrowded, for climbers have in the past preferred other crags such as nearby Finale Ligure.

Muzzerone is therefore best suited for those in search of not just bolts and micro-edges, since climbing is not just an athletic gesture, but for those with a great love of nature. And this element definitely abounds here.
