The first routes at the overhanging crag Tarzan wall were put up by Maurizio Felici, then Daniele Lira, Riccardo Scarian and other friends from the Belluno region. The excellent quality Dolomia rock is covered in a thin patina of truly special limestone. Most routes are in the mid and upper grades, both slabby and superbly overhanging up to 35m in height, with a great variety of holds, from furious crimps to slopes, pockets and tufas of all shapes and sizes... plus some artificial “lifting”.
Given the angle and style of climbing, most routes are in the mid and upper grades. The base of the crag is comfortable and wide enough for children but since the rock is at times friable in places, those below must take great care and attention. The crag stays dry in the rain, but subsequently seeps and takes a long time to dry out.
Sanzan is located circa 40km SW of Belluno, in NE Italy. From Sanzan, walk uphill through the village and take the path for "Tre Croci", turning off left to follow the obvious trail that runs along the base of the crag. At a certain point, after a metal cable used to transport the wood, turn off left to reach the righthand side of the crag. Approach 25 minutes circa.
