There's a new crag to climb on close to Cortina: Rio Gere. In truth the first routes were bolted on this enormous outcrop at the start of the '90's by Diego Ghedina "Tomasc", a member of the local Scoiattolo group who realised the potential of this crag.
Ghedina soon abandoned this project however as he discovered another attractive face: the "Crepe d' Oucera bassi" which he bolted from start to finish with constant and convinced passion.
Many years have passed since then but recently two untiring Scoiattoli climbers decided to valorise the crag once more. The expert Mox (Massimo Da Pozzo) and Bruno Sartorelli sorted out the original routes and created numerous other, up to 40m long overhanging lines.
Thanks to them Cortina now has another great crag to train on!
From Cortina follow signs east for Passo Tre Croci - Misurina. After circa 5 km a road breaks off left for the mountain hut "Brite de Larieto". Continue alont the main road for another hundred meters to reach a small layby on the right - park here. A small path leads right (SE) into the forest of larch trees and on past a river bed and then steeply to the enormous outcrop (15 minutes from the car park).
Technical stamina climbing on steep terrain.
