Trial

First ascent: Marco Valente, Christian Rizzo, 08/2010
By: Mirko Rizzo
Area: Western Alps, Group: Ligurian Alps, Peak: Rocca dei Campanili, Height: 2000m, Country: Italy, Region: Piemonte

Beautiful rock climb in a superb setting which climbs through a section of the wall which has not yet been developed. In view of its relatively low grade and the excellent pro, Trial is already a classic "easy" outing.

GETTING THERE

Take the A6 Savona-Torino, exit at Ceva and continue for Garessio-Ormea to reach Ponte di Nava. Leave the main road SS28 at this point and drive up the Alta Valle Tanaro to Viozene and park here.

ACCESS

Take the path from the church to Rifugio Mongioie. After 40 minutes reach this mountain hut and continue across the meadows to reach the bse of the wall (1.30 hours from the car). The route starts to the right of Nonno sprint, name written at the base.

ROUTE

P1: 6a+
P2: 6b
P3: 6a

DESCENT
