Monte Gallo new route above Palermo, Sicily

01.06.2010 by Planetmountain

Vento d’estate (290m, 6c), new route on Monte Gallo above Palermo first ascended by Max Flaccavento and Giorgio Iurato.

The immense Monte Gallo high above Palermo in Sicily is slowly but surely coming of age, with a series of interesting new routes being added each spring and autumn. The latest addition comes from the two Sicilians Massimo Flaccavento and Giorgio Iurato who once again have forged a new route up this beautiful mountain, giving birth to their Vento d'estate - summer breeze. Although the difficulties are not extreme - max 6c - the route has an alpine feel and the panorama - high above the nature reserve and Palermo, is truly outstanding.
