Cornalba

By: Nicola Noè, Beppe Dallona
Country: Italy, Region: Lombardy, Town: Cornalba (Bergamo)

"Cornalba is perhaps not as popular as it once used to be because the climbing style is no longer in vogue: slightly overhanging face climbing, with routes that are technical and complicated. The few repeats are testament to this change in style, and nowadays those who climb hard and compete mostly train on overhangs. Nevertheless Cornalba has an incredible potential, especially in its central section, but one really has to work at it." These the words of Beppe Dallona, perhaps Cornalba's most devoted local.
