Chanson de Pres verts
On the whole the climbing is less beautiful than that on Ombre e Lumiere, but some pitches are nevertheless interesting and worth doing. The route climbs the right-hand side of the tower, following a series of enormous steps up good rock.
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.
