San Leonardo, climbing at Monviso

15.10.2012 by Tristano Gallo

Tristano Gallo introduces the crag San Leonardo in Piemonte, 150 climbs from 4c - 7b.

San Leonardo, located immediately above the village of Revello, offers a fine-grained but well polished rock with small crimps and pockets and routes ranging from 4c to 7b. The crag faces east and hosts circa 150 routes, the best of which are located at the sector Destro. This is only sector where climbing is possible all year round as the other sectors are home to the peregrine falcon and access is forbidden during the nesting period from February to August.

The crag is reached by taking the road from Saluzzo to Revello and turning off towards Envie (8 km). After circa 1 km, close to a fork, turn left off the main road and continue up Via Dietro Castello which leads steeply up to Colle della Croce. Park here and continue on foot for circa 15 minutes along the gravel road to reach a hairpin bend. A path leads quickly to the base of the crag.
