Castelbianco

By: Luca Biondi
Country: Italy, Region: Liguria, Town: Castelbianco - Albenga (Savona)

Sport climbing at Castelbianco is nothing new, seeing that the crag was developed at the start of the '90's by Andrea Gallo & Co who established routes up to 8a. At the end of the '90's two climbers from Genua, Luca Biondi and Andrea Bisio, added a series of new routes up to 8b.

Castelbianco became synonymous with steep overhanging testpieces but in the first decade of the new millennium the crag matured and a series of easier routes were added to the left-hand side up great compact limestone.

GETTING THERE

Take the motorway Genova - Ventimiglia, exit for Albenga, reach Cisano sul Neva, continue towards Garessio and turn off left, circa 1km after Cisano, following signs for Castelbianco - Alto. Park the car beneath the obvious crag circa 300m after the village Castelbianco and reach the crag on foot in just 5 minutes.

THE CLIMBING

Powerful stamina climbing through the steep overhang.

NOTES

The gear for the routes equipped by Luca Biondi and Andrea Bisio was offered by Kong, while the routes added by Andrea Bisio were sponsored by Andrea Gallo's Idee Verticali Edizioni.
