Bec de Roces
On the East Face, there are three sectors of single pitches, perfect for the hot summer days, as they are in the shade from the mid day. There are 20 routes with difficulties ranging from 5b to 7a, up to 34 meters long, on vertical or slightly overhanging walls.
On the West Face the are longer trad climbs (up to three pitches), from III to V +. For these routes you need to integrate the gear and to abseil back down. All routes have their names written at the base.
Pay attention to some loose rock as the routes are new.
The routes have been equipped by the Mountain Guide Francesco Tremolada with the help of several friends including Giorgio Manica and Andrea Oberbacher, colleagues at the Alta Badia Guides company based in Corvara, Filippo Beccari and Thomas Kostner (who put up the route: Landmanna Laugar, Jambo, Dylan & Co), Roberto Canzio, Marco Moretti and many others…
Special thanks to Bec de Roces mountain hut, ideal for a refreshments at the end of climbing, which provided some of the gear used to bolt the routes.
