Ombre et Lumiere

First ascent: D. Nichard, J. M. Poey, P. Sanchou & M. Lacroix, 12-13/10/1996, from above
By: Maurizio Oviglia
Area: Corsica, Group: Vallee du Tavignano, Peak: Rossolino, Country: France, Region: Corsica

Splendid granite climbing up incredibly weathered rock. The route climbs the left-hand side of the Rossolino pillar wedged in the narrow Tavignano valley and follows a series of fantastic corners and vertical walls with rounded holds. The route is equipped in abundance with stainless steel bolts, similar to what one finds at sport crags. This enables you to enjoy the beauty of the rock and the moves it offers. There are plenty of other well-equipped and highly rewarding climbs on this pillar.

GETTING THERE

Start at Corte.

ACCESS

Leave the car at Corte and follow signs for Valle di Tavignano. Follow the path which enters the valley at half-height, high above the river. Walk for about 1.5 hours to where the valley narrows and the path leads past the Rossolino rocks (1.45 hours from the car). It is possible to descend to the river at this point. The route starts in a narrow gully to the left.

DESCENT

Abseil down the line of ascent (50m ropes, prussik loops).

GEAR

10 quickdraws, double 50m x 9mm ropes. The route is equipped with 10mm stainless steel bolts.

Che dire, Via magnifica granito stupendo, valle fatata.... inoltre il periodo autunnoinvernale è decisamente consigliabile. Poca gente, temperatura ideale, colori non solo verdi. Non tentare esperimenti strani, ma calarsi lungo la via!!! Sisso e Cippa

Salita davvero bella su roccia entusiasmante. La chiodatura è tipo falesia. La valutazione delle difficoltà mi sembra un po' generosa per alcuni tiri che ritengo siano sopragradati. Comunque bellissima .
