Mottarone

By: Mauro Colombo & soci
Country: Italy, Region: Piemonte, Town: Mottarone (Novara)

The recently discovered “Parco dei Sassi” is located above Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, directly in front of Monte Rosa. Reddish/grey granite boulders up to 5m high, large grained and rounded, result in slopy moves above grass or sand landings. This splendid bouldering area is divided into 6 main areas, most of which remain completely untouched.

Exit at Carpugnino and continue to Mottarone (16km, the final section is privately owned and costs Euro 4,00) From the west: from Turin take the motorway A4 east. Turn off north onto the A26 (Voltri – Sempione) towards Gravellona Toce. Exit at Borgomanero and continue along the 229 past Gozzano. Turn off right towards Armeno and follow signs to Mottarone.
