Climbing at Pietrasecca, Italy


Rock climbing at Pietrasecca in Abruzzo, Italy, with 70 routes from 5a to 8c, presented by Cesare Giuliani.

Pietrasecca is located beneath the village in the Marino Valley and hosts circa 70 routes from 5a to 8c, with numerous in the 6a/b region. This historic crag located at circa 800m is characterised by an obvious jutting overhang and offers technical face climbing.

The crag has been re-equipped recently thanks to the local Yama Assocciation, and Pietrasecca recently made headline news with the first free ascent of "Shanghai", a 20 year-old project freed at 8c in June 2008 by Roberto delle Fratte. "La Morte" is the final big challenge through the steep overhang still waiting for its first free ascent.
