Sasso Garibaldi

11.05.2012 by Planetmountain

Eraldo Meraldi presents Sasso Garibaldi near Bagni di Bormio (Italy), recently bolted by the Alta Valtellina Alpine Guides with 7 easy climbs ideal for beginners.

The beautiful park at Bagni di Bormio is secluded, quiet and somewhat mysterious, an oasis of peace and tranquility just a stone's throw from Bormio. Several well-beaten trails testament that this area is often frequented by wild animals, and nestled within the beautiful larch, fir and mountain pine forest lies a huge boulder called Sasso Garibaldi. Story goes that from its summit General Giuseppe Garibaldi led the assault onto Bagni Vecchi which, in 1859, was occupied by the Habsburgs. Ever since the late '70's the "sasso" has been a popular with climbers and now on its higher and more accessible face the local Alta Valtellina mountain guides have bolted some easy climbs which enable everyone to enjoy this enchanting corner of the Italian Alps.
