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.
The crag is reached by driving from Saluzzo, past Revello, to Envie (12 km). After the church in the town centre turn off left at Piazza San Giovanni and ascend to the fork. Drive along Via Sasia, keep left at the next forks for circa 1.5km to where this almost ends at a house. Park just before the house and walk up the forest track which leads through the wood in 25 minutes to the base of the crag.
