This crag was first developed during the 1990's by a group of climbers including Antonio Palermi, Stefano Romanucci, Virgulti A. and Mauro Calibani... and counted circa 40 routes. After fighting their way through the bush to the base of the crag in August 2007, the Sacripanti brothers bolted the new route "Il ritorno"and "Diana express". This is how the adventure began which is still taking in full swing.
The crag was made safe, cleaned, paths were made and new routes bolted thanks to a close-knit group of friends who rotated around Gilberto Sacripanti and Leandro Faress.
San Giorgio is now a mature crag, where climbing is possible all year round thanks to the south-facing winter sector and the north-facing summer sector.
From Ascoli Piceno continue past the Parco dell'Annunziata towards Monte Rosara. Bear left at the fork towards Coperso, then at the next fork bear left once again for Monte Rosara. Park in the curve on the right after 500m, close to a small road on the left (with old chain).
The crag is 50m high and 300m wide, with a panoramic view onto Castel Trosino and San Giacomo at an altitude of circa 450m. There are circa 110 routes from grade V to 8a, plus a possible 8c project. The environment is isolated and wild, rich in flora and fauna, ideal for walks to the monastery below.
