The recently discovered “Parco dei Sassi” is located above Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, directly in front of Monte Rosa. Reddish/grey granite boulders up to 5m high, large grained and rounded, result in slopy moves above grass or sand landings. This splendid bouldering area is divided into 6 main areas, most of which remain completely untouched.
