Rocca Bert, rock climbing in the Po Valley
Tristano Gallo introduces the beautful and difficult Rocca Bert in Piemonte, with 32 climbs from 6a - 8b+.
Rocca Bert is a 70m high buttress, almost hidden from view in a small valley above the village of Envie. This steeply overhanging gneiss rock face is practically devoid of holds and the climbs therefore require power and stamina. The grades range from 6a to 8b+ and climbing is possible from spring to late autumn, even when it rains. The crag faces North and hosts 32 routes.
