Avostanis, rock climbing above an enchanting lake in Italy Carnic Alps
Fabio Meraldi introduces the beautiful crag Avostanis in Carnia (Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy). With more than 120 sport climbs and a handful of multipitch routes, this cliff is ideal for all those who climb from 4b to 8b. Avostanis will also host the historic Arrampicarnia climbing meeting from 14 to 15 September 2019.
The basin of spectacular Lake Avostanis is closed to the north by a solid limestone wall, finely chiselled by superficial karst , 100 meters high and almost 300 meters wide.
The routes on this crag ascend extremely compact limestone, up slabs, vertical faces and some cracks. Overhangs are rare and the style of climbing is very technical and always requires precise footwork.
The first routes date back to the early 1980s. The easiest and oldest climb was established by the mountain guide S.D. Infanti and the crag was subsequently developed by the mountain guide Attilio De Rovere, Giorgio Bianchi, Gianni Cattaino and co. Recently a small sector to the left of the main wall has been bolted by young Osvaldo Edel.
With more than 120 sport climbs and a handful of multipitch routes, Avostanis is ideal for all those who climb from 4b to 8b.
Arrampicarnia is back from 14 to 15 September 2019 at the beautiful cliff Avostanis in the Carnic Alps (Friuli Venezia Giulia). This was one of the first non-competitive meetings in the history of Italian sport climbing.
The crag, Lake Avostanis and Malga Pramosio will act as a base camp for climbing beginners, children and experts, slackline, yoga, music, free camping, gear tests, e-bike and much more.
