Ombre et Lumiere
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.
Start at Corte.
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.
Abseil down the line of ascent (50m ropes, prussik loops).
10 quickdraws, double 50m x 9mm ropes. The route is equipped with 10mm stainless steel bolts.
