Nibbio

By: Nicola NoƩ
Country: Italy, Region: Lombardy, Town: Nibbio (Lecco)

Located at the foot of Lecco's Grigna, the Nibbio tower holds an important place in Italian mountaineering history, with the likes of Cassin, Bonatti, Messner and Comici all passing this way.

The climbing varies considerably from thin cracks to overhanging slabs. Classic routes stand side by side to modern sports routes, and the climbing is highly technical, requiring technique, stamina and excellent footwork.

GETTING THERE

From Lecco follow signs to Ballabio. reach this and turn off left after 1km following signs to "Pian dei Resinelli". After a series of hairpin bends reach this plateau (8km) and park the car on the right. Continue on foot up the road towards Refuge Sem (a bar is located on the left after the corner) and after 100m continue right at the first fork. Reach another fork after 50m and keep right. Walk past two houses and descend for 200m to the end of the road. A path on the right leads swiftly up to the crag (5 mins from the car park).

THE CLIMBING

Fingery stamina climbing on small edges and sharp pockets. Most routes have a powerful 7-8 move crux which is followed by technical sequences to the top.
